What is EndNote?
EndNote is bibliographic management software that can help you organize your references and produce bibliographies for the preparation of papers and grants. In addition, it can be used to add your own notes, keywords (or ‘tags’), and useful quotations to the references. The references can be sorted and searched, and incorporated automatically into papers for publication.
Where to get EndNote
UVM has a campus site license to EndNote. All faculty and staff may download EndNote for free from the UVM software site through Enterprise Technology
- The most current version is X6
- Important Note: If you are collaborating or sharing EndNote files with a colleague you should all use the same version of EndNote.
- The latest version of EndNote installs with a limited number of output styles, connection files and filters. You may need to download additional files from the EndNote website to ensure that you can directly export citations smoothly into EndNote or can create bibliographies in the journal style of your choosing. Follow these links on the EndNote website to obtain the files you need:
o Output styles (so your bibliographies can be formatted in the journal style you choose)
o Connection files (so you can directly connect to and search databases from EndNote)
o Import Filters (so you can directly export or import citations from literature databases into EndNote)
Each EndNote library you create has two parts:
- (name).enl contains all your EndNote references.
- (name).data is the data folder associated with that library. It contains attached files and images as well as term lists and other data underlying the database. The .data folder is created automatically and should be saved in the same location as the .enl file.
- When you back-up your library (or libraries), which you should do regularly, be certain to include both files in your backup.
