EndNote for Mac

Create an account

EndNote Online is the online counterpart of your desktop version. Once set up it provides

  • Easy access to a consolidated library via Web of Science or a .myendnoteweb account
  • Ability to sync with a local version so you can access your library from multiple locations
  • A Capture tool allowing you to export web-based sources that don't have EndNote's direct export tool
  • Options that streamline reference-sharing with colleagues


  • Access Web of Science from AUT Library's database page
  • Click Sign in and select Register
  • Enter your email address and choose a password


  • Once you have set up your account you can access EndNote Online via Web of Science or from any computer with an Internet connection
  • Your account remains active for 12 months from the date it was last accessed 

Install plug-ins

Cite While You Write plug-in

  • If you have already installed a desktop version of the EndNote software, you don't need to download the Cite While You Write plug-in.
  • If you use Endnote Online only (not the EndNote desktop version), you should install this plug-in for citing references in Word documents. 

Capture plug-ins

  • The Capture bookmarklet creates references for websites and other web-based sources that don't have an in-built direct export option
