Installing EndNote and Important Mac Updates

By Danielle Drummond

EndNote is available to UNMC faculty, staff, and students and IDeA grant-supported investigators from institutions outside of UNMC under an academic site license. EndNote at UNMC is provided by the Nebraska INBRE grant, a complete cost partner, via the NIH IDeA award, Nebraska Research Network in Functional Genomics. EndNote is managed by the McGoogan Library of Medicine at UNMC.  This bibliographic referencing software keeps a record of citations and creates bibliographies, eliminating the stress of manually collecting and curating research materials. Additional features include sharing libraries and groups with colleagues, finding full text, read & annotate PDFs, and more.

EndNote X9 can be downloaded on UNMC workstations, personal PC laptops, and Mac computers. If you currently use an older version of Endnote, upgrades to X9 are available. Fill out the installation request form for new installations and upgrades http://unmc.libguides.com/endnote/request-install-unmc. We’ll confirm your request within one business day.

Mac Update

Sometime this fall, Apple will release macOS Catalina. This new operating system will not be compatible with EndNote X8 and earlier versions, plus early updates of EndNote X9. If you have EndNote X9, you need to install all current updates from Clarivate Analytics as soon as those updates become available to you within EndNote. With these latest updates in place, EndNote X9 should work as expected.

If you have EndNote X8 and earlier versions and would like to upgrade to X9, fill out the EndNote request form (if you are using a UNMC owned computer, you may need to contact your IT administrator).

If you prefer not to upgrade to EndNote X9, it is recommended that you do not install macOS Catalina due to major compatibility issues.

If you run into any problems, please contact EndNote Tech Support: +1-800-336-4474, press 4
