Reference Management: EndNote

Get EndNote

EndNote is available for free to all Duke University faculty, staff and students.

We offer EndNote classes!

FYI Mac OS Catalina issues!!

Are you using EndNote on a Mac?

If so, there are important changes underway! Sometime fall 2019, Apple will be releasing the latest Mac OS 10.15 (also know as Catalina).  With the release of Catalina, Apple will be dropping all 32-bit application support and this will impact EndNote.  EndNote X9 for Mac will be extensively updated for compatibility prior to the launch of Catalina.

What do you need to do?

  • If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow.
  • If you are running EndNote X8 or earlier, it is recommended you upgrade to EndNote X9 as your older EndNote versions may not work with macOS Catalina. 

For more details, please visit the EndNote support page on this transition.
