  • Search your citations and select Morris Librarys databases.
  • Insert citations into documents while you write.
 

Get EndNote Desktop

EndNote Desktop is available to current SIU Carbondale and SIU School of Medicine graduate students and faculty. EndNote Online (Web) is available to SIU Carbondale undergraduate students and staff. Questions about School of Medicine use may be directed to reference@siumed.edu.

To install EndNote Desktop on your device:

1. Follow this link to download the Site-Licensed Software Distribution form. Complete the form and return it to campus IT at software@siu.edu or fax it to 618-453-4152.

2. After verifying your eligibility, IT will send you an email with a link that will remain valid for 3 business days to install EndNote Desktop on your device. The email will also contain installation instructions.

3. In most circumstances, select typical installation. Custom installation provides the options of additional bibliographical styles, filters, and connection files.

 

Get Started

1. Open EndNote Desktop and from the File menu select New and enter a name for your library. It's highly recommended that you choose a unique library name in case you later share your EndNote library with colleagues and collaborators. 

2. Choose a destination for your EndNote library (My Documents is recommended) and click Save. Note: Do not save your working library to a flash drive or cloud storage (i.e. Dropbox, Sharepoint) because eventually the data will be corrupted. However, it's okay to save a back-up copy of your library to a flash drive or cloud storage. 

Sync

If you have an EndNote Online (Web) account with saved citations you can easily sync it with your Desktop library. You can also sync EndNote Desktop with an existing Web of Science account. 

1. In EndNote Desktop, click the sync button at the top of the screen.

2. Log-in to your EndNote or Web of Science account. You also have the option of creating a new EndNote account at this step.

3. Complete the user registration form.

4. The first time you sync, EndNote will copy all citations from each library into the other, and this might result in duplicates. To eliminate duplicates, click Find Duplicates in the References menu.

5. After you sync the first time, your sync status will appear in the Groups panel. Click it for details about the most recent sync.

6. Your EndNote Desktop and Online account are now synced. Desktop will automatically sync with Online as you make changes and vice versa. You can also manually sync at any time by clicking the sync button.
