EndNote is available for all Rutgers affiliated students, faculty, and staff. This is a licensed (subscription) product, so you need to download it from the library in order to gain full access to the software.

EndNote platforms

EndNote desktop is a program for collecting and organizing references from online or other sources. You can create a searchable personal database of references, find full text articles, manage and annotate PDF files, cite references while writing a paper, create bibliographies formatted in a preferred style, and more.

EndNote basic is a web-based version of EndNote designed to work in the cloud, making it particularly useful for scholars who work from multiple computers, or who need to work collaboratively. EndNote desktop and EndNote basic are designed to work in concert, although each can be used independently. A free EndNote basic account can be created from within EndNote or Web of Science, or at MyEndNoteWeb.com.

EndNote app for iPad is available from the Apple Store. The app allows users to find, store, create, and share references anywhere and anytime. It also enables PDF annotations directly within the app.

Download EndNote

As a Rutgers user, you should not be asked to enter a product key to install the EndNote desktop program for Windows. After downloading the EndNote zip file, you unzip it and place the extracted files in a separate folder. Then clicking the installer should allow you to install the program on a Windows computer.
