Download EndNote X7 (for PC)
Download Endnote X7 (for Mac)

Steps for Use:

  1. Choose Save to the Local Computer.
  2. Unzip to the Local Computer. (If your computer doesn't download to the desktop, drag the icon from "Downloads" to the desktop to perform this step).
  3. Open the folder labeled "EndNote".
  4. For PC Users: If the file ENX7Ilinst.msi has been properly extracted, it will be labeled "Windows Installer Package". You may need to mouse-over and highlight the icon to check. If it is not labeled as such, you will need to unzip it again. *
  5. Double click on the file enxlinst.msi and follow the instructions of the installation wizard. If you are prompted for a product key, the file has not been properly extracted (see step 4 above)

NOTE: To use EndNote, you must first install it on your computer. If you attempt to run the program without installing it, you will be prompted for a key code.

NOTE: You may not install EndNote for use on any computer in the Library. If you want to use EndNote in the Library, use MYEndnote Web through Web of Knowledge on the Information Resources Page. You will have to register to use this feature.

* What may be useful is to RIGHT-click on the zipped file in order to unzip it. You will see a folder on your desktop labeled "EndNote X5". In that will be another folder labeled "EndNote X3". Within that will be the ENX5Iinst.msi file that you need to unzip in order to install.
