License Restrictions:

Endnote is available to Faculty, Staff and Grad Students under a volume pricing plan for purchase either by department index/grant number or personal/business check (made payable to OSU). Under the terms of the contract OSU is the licensee not the individual user. One license covers one computer installation. You have home-use rights at the university (you may install on both your home and work computers as long as the majority of the EndNote usage is on your work computer and that you are the sole user of both computers).

If you leave the university, you must remove the software from your home computer, and the license for your work computer will be transferred to another employee.

WORD 2010: Please see the Word 2010 information page on the EndNote site. EndNote X3 and earlier are not considered compatible with Word 2010. Version X4 and later will be compatible with the 32-bit version for Word 2010, and Microsoft recommends 32-bit Office 2010 for both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.


There is a known issue with records having a blank in the Year field when importing records with a publication date of 2010 or later in versions 8, 9, X, X1 and X2 (X3 and later versions do not have this issue). Please see the EndNote FAQ page regarding this issue for more information. Patches and instructions are now available for downloading at this page.
NOTE: X1 updates require an uninstall and reinstall of the updated version, for both Windows and Mac.

EndNote for Windows and Macintosh is a valuable all-in-one tool that integrates the following tasks into one program:

  • Search bibliographic databases on the Internet
  • Organize references, images, PDFs and other files
  • Construct your paper with built-in manuscript templates
  • Watch the bibliography and figure list appear as you write

The Valley Library holds free EndNote classes for grad students and faculty a few times per term. If you are interested in what is being offered, please go to their Library Workshop web page, where you can see what is being offered and sign up for the classes.

PLEASE NOTE: Once you leave the university, you must remove all site-licensed software from your personal computers.  Any valid licenses on your work computers may be transferred to another employee.
