EndNote 20 (desktop)

If you want to install EndNote for personal use, please see:

For help setting up your EndNote Library, see:

EndNote Basic / EndNote Online

EndNote 20 (desktop) is a better reference management tool than EndNote Basic or EndNote Online, with many additional features not available in the basic/online versions.  See:

For this reason, we recommend you use EndNote Desktop 20 and only use an online version for 'syncing'.  You would need to sync your libraries if:

  • you need to use more than one device (e.g. PC at University and personal laptop)
  • you want to share your references/Library with colleagues/friends
  • you have previously used EndNote Online and wish to start using EndNote Desktop (syncing will get all of your online library references into your desktop library).

For instructions on how to do this, see Appendix B: Syncing Endnote Online and EndNote Desktop:

If you need to access EndNote Basic directly, please use the following link:

Other Reference Management Software

There are many other tools available, however, EndNote is the software we can provide help and guidance with.  For other tools see:
