How to Use EndNote

Aug. 1, 2019 Product Update

As you may be aware, Apple will be releasing macOS 10.15 Catalina this fall, (2019). Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support with this release, which will impact EndNote. 

EndNote X9 for macOS will be extensively updated for compatibility prior to the launch of Catalina. If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow. The UML IT home page offers Endnote X9.

If you are running EndNote X8 or earlier, we recommend upgrading to EndNote X9 as based on early information from Apple, your current version will not work with macOS Catalina. Alternately, you may keep working on your current macOS version.

EndNote is a citation manager. It allows you to manage your citations in a large number of formats, attach full-text PDFs, and organize these into groups. At the same time, you can cite sources in text, and build your bibliographies right from the software.
