EndNote is a free software for Nova students, faculty & staff. Use it to store and organize your references and PDFs from the library's databases. Insert citations from Endnote into a word document as you write.

Updated Software

Please use the EndNote X9 guide to learn about installing EndNote software and setting up EndNote Online. 

Currently NSU is offering version X9 for free licensed download. You must update it to the most current version on both PCs and Macs. It is not advised to install previous versions.  You can also sign up for the free EndNote Online version, which can be synced with a desktop library or used on its own. (If you have a Chromebook -- the desktop software cannot be installed on Chromebooks -- but you can use the basic online version.)

Apple has released macOS Catalina. Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support with this release, which will impact EndNote

As of October 9, 2019, the most current versions of EndNote X9 are:
PC = X9.2
Mac = X9.3.1

The EndNote software must be fully updated before upgrading to new operating systems. If EndNote is not compatible with your computer, the software will become disabled.

If you have already updated your Mac to the operating system, Catalina, please contact the Alvin Sherman Library's Reference Desk.
