The Library


EndNote is software that can help you manage citations for your research projects. It can automate much of the work of organising and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing. EndNote can connect to online sources such as the library website and article databases, and can output results in over 1,000 different bibliographic styles.

There are two versions of EndNote: 

EndNote Desktop is the 'full' version of the software, made available to all University of Lincoln students and staff through our institutional licence.

EndNote Online is a web based version. This is freely available for anyone to use, but does not have all the features of the full EndNote Desktop version.

Installing EndNote Desktop

EndNote X9 is available for download from:

  • ICT's software for home use. Use this to install EndNote X9 to your laptop for use on- and off-campus.
  • the Software Centre on any networked campus University of Lincoln PC or Mac. If you install EndNote to your account this way you will need to access it from off campus using the University Cloud Desktop.

Accessing EndNote Online

Once you have created your EndNote Web account, you can sync your libraries so a change in one will automatically be reflected in the other. See the EndNote Web tab for additional information on how to set up that account.
