Need help learning EndNote, RefWorks, and the rest? You've come to the right place.

Download EndNote

By installing the Endnote software, I agree:

  • If I leave the University (by cessation of matriculation or termination of employment) I will discontinue use and uninstall the software.
  • I may install the software on personal machines, including laptops, and home machines.
  • The software may be installed on a network server as well as on other computers owned or operated by the University of Georgia over an internal network at the authorized site(s).
  • At the end of the institution site license, if it is not renewed, I will uninstall the Endnote software. I understand I can save my Endnote libraries and purchase a copy of Endnote to keep using Endnote.

If you are an IT manager installing Endnote on multiple UGA computers, please email Ian Thomas with the number for record-keeping purposes. We have added X8 for PC and Mac to the download list. If you run Sierra (the latest Mac OS) you must use EndNote x8. No other versions of EndNote are compatible with Mac Sierra OS.

I Agree

Additional Downloads and Files

NOTE: Please download the latest Endnote updates after installing!

You will also need to re-install Endnote Web if you are updating.

When you have read the license and clicked 'I agree', you will be taken to a screen where you can download your preferred version of EndNote. Two prior versions are retained for those using earlier versions to complete degree requirements.

Downloading citation data for books

Due to software updates, if you want to download citation information for books, you need an additional file. This is not available from EndNote. Please email Ian Thomas at to get the file. 

EndNote on a Mac

There are special compatibility issues that can come up for EndNote on a Mac. Please go to the EndNote for Mac page for additional instructions, and troubleshooting. See below for special preparation before downloading.

MAC USERS -- Before you download EndNote...

1) Quit your word processing programs. Closing the window (the red button) is not enough.

2) We recommend downloading Firefox. Firefox is the only browser that automatically sends database and Google Scholar citations to  EndNote. To use Safari, after you download a citation file, you must drag that file and place it over the EndNote icon in your dock. That is the only way to import citations from a database in Safari. 

Remember: The first time you send database references to EndNote, you must designate the program to open the reference files in Firefox . Follow the directions in the video at right.

  • Firefox does not have to be your default browser.
  • You do not need to remove other browsers.
