A comprehensive guide to the reference management software EndNote.

Create a library

  • Open EndNote from Start > All apps, or by searching for EndNote on your computer
  • You may see the following message:

           EndNote Online setup box

  • Ignore the message (which relates to EndNote Online) and name your library. Save to your C drive, or temporarily to the desktop if using a campus computer
  • If you have used EndNote X8 or earlier versions, selecting EndNote from the Start menu may open your existing library in EndNote X9
  • You can have more than one library but it is far easier to maintain a single library and organise it using tools described in Organise your Library
  • You can merge multiple libraries
