Install EndNote

Mac installation

After downloading the installer from Network Software, the .dmg file should open automatically (otherwise manually open it). This will mount a virtual drive on your desktop and open the drive window. Then simply drag the EndNote folder to your applications folder. This will install the EndNote application and all support files.

Windows installation

After downloading the installer from Network Software, open the .exe file to start the installation. You'll be presented with options for what to install; we recommend installing all connection, filter, and output files (you'll need to change from selected to all for each section).

Check for updates

After installation is complete, you should check for any recent updates not included in the installer. Open EndNote, go to the Help menu, and choose EndNote Program Updates. Install any newer version it recommends.

Cite While You Write

We've found that Cite While You Write functionality in MS Word is very dependent on having the latest version of Word installed. Open Word, go to its Help menu, and check for updates.

Download EndNote (from campus network)

The university has a site license for the EndNote product and makes it available to all Virginia Tech faculty, staff, and students.

This product may be installed on any machines owned by the University. You may install it on personally owned machines if you are a graduate student, undergraduate student, faculty member or staff member of the University.

You have to be connected to the campus network, including the Virginia Tech VPN, to download EndNote  from the Software Distribution Office site. Once downloaded and installed, check periodically to see if there have been updates.
