Beginning EndNote: Start Here


ALERT for Mac users: The update for Word that is included in the new update for MS Office is not compatible with Endnote. If you install the update, you will lose the CWYW add-in (the Endnote toolbar) in your Word program. There is now an update X8.2 that will fix this problem! Go into the EndNote program and under the Help menu, click Check for Updates. For more information, see this link.


Good news for Ebsco database and EndNote users who need to download large citations sets! Ebsco databases now allow you to export large data sets up to 25000 records at a time. If you click on the Share drop down in the upper right corner fo the search results, the last choice is to Email a link to download exported results.
