EndNote: EndNote At Rowan University

Guide to installing and using EndNote for students, researchers, faculty, and staff at Rowan University.

What is EndNote?




EndNote is an excellent resource that helps users quickly collect and organize references from online sources (or elsewhere), create a searchable personal database, find and cite these references while writing, and create bibliographies formatted in their style of choice.  You can output results in over 1,000 different bibliographic styles.  Use built in manuscripts templates to correctly format  and more.

Rowan University users have access to multiple versions of EndNote:

  1. A standalone program available for both Windows and Mac computers and laptops.  This version needs to be downloaded from the Rowan University Software Downloads website and then installed on your computer.  For instructions on downloading and installing the Windows version of EndNote click here.    For download and install instructions on Macs click here.  Users will need to authenticate their Rowan affiliation using their Rowan Network ID and password before downloading EndNote to their computer or laptop.
  2.  EndNote Online, a cloud-based version of EndNote.  Rowan University users have access to EndNote Online, which is an enhanced version of the free cloud based version of EndNote called EndNote Basic.  Use your Rowan email address to create an EndNote Online account. 

EndNote Online is designed to work in concert with the desktop/laptop version of EndNote.  References can easily be transferred and synched between the two versions. but each can also be used independently of the other.  Both have similar capabilities, but the desktop/laptop version of EndNote has features not available in EndNote Online, is faster, and is easier to import references from more databases than the cloud based version.  However, one advantage EndNote Online has over the desktop/laptop version is the ability to share your references with other EndNote Online users. 

Note that the iPad version of EndNote is not part of Rowan University Libraries' EndNote subscription, and must be purchased separately.
