EndNote Guides

What Is EndNote?

EndNote is a software program that helps organize your research.

EndNote works with various word processing programs to automatically create and format citations and bibliographies.

Check out EndNote's word processor compatibility (Windows and Mac)

Some files do not automatically load when you install EndNote. You can download additional Output StylesImport Filters, and Connection Files from the EndNote website. For your convenience we have posted some of the most popular additional files on the EndNote Files tab.

Latest Versions

EndNote Online Intro

EndNote Basic, the online version of EndNote, is available for free to current UCLA students, faculty, and staff.

This is a very brief guide to help you get started collecting citations for your EndNote Basic library. There is much more extensive help on the EndNote Web page.

Importing Citations from Health and Life Sciences Databases

The PDF files below will explain how to export citations from frequently used health and life sciences databases and import the citations into an EndNote library.

It is also possible to connect to and search UCLA-subscribed databases through the EndNote program's connection files. The Biomedical Library does not recommend this technique be used when conducting thorough literature searches. The number of results returned from connection files searches may vary from the number of results retrieved when searching a database directly.
