About EndNote




EndNote is a program for managing bibliographic citations. It can automate much of the work of organizing and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing. EndNote can connect to online sources such as IUCAT and article databases. Further, it formats references in  over 1,000 different bibliographic styles, and more.

EndNote is available free of charge to Indiana University and IUPUI students, faculty and staff. You can download it through IUware, and the latest version available is Endnote x20.

*Your EndNote program will work better, if you download the updates.*


The video below provides a brief intro duction to what Endnote is and why you should use it:

Endnote Classes and Helpful Links

The Ruth Lilly Medical Library has kindly agreed to help support the SON students and faculty when it comes to Endnote classes. They do a wonderful job teaching the software, and if you have questions after class, please follow up with me directly.

See this link for class dates and times. They are available in-person and via Zoom. Please register beforehand if you plan to attend in-person. For Zoom, you'll use the Zoom link at the top of the page at the appointed class time.

This link will show you how to set up Endnote to access the full-text of articles. Be aware that it isn't perfect, and it typically only seems to pull in 30-50% of the references in your list. You'll have to search the rest individually, and will likely have to request some of them using interlibrary loan.
