Install and Set Up EndNote

If you are updating a previous version of EndNote, please back-up your library and uninstall the older version before proceeding.

 

1) Install EndNote

  1. Quit all programs running on your computer (including virus protection) for the duration of the installation process. ESPECIALLY be sure to quit Microsoft Word before starting.
  2. Download and install the EndNote Program using the link below (Carleton faculty, staff, and students only)

2) Check for software updates

  • In EndNote, click the "EndNote" menu item and then "Check for Updates"

3) Connect Carleton's databases and citation styles

  1. Download Styles-CC, Filters-CC, and Connections-CC linked above and save them into your EndNote application folder on your computer.
  2. In Endnote, select "Preferences" and the "Folder Locations"
  3. For each type of folder, select the equivalent from the folders you just installed. For example, for "styles" select your new "Styles-CC" folder.

4) Enable "Find Full Text"

  1. Go to the EndNote menu and choose Preferences. 
  2. Click on Find Full Text.
  3. Make sure the box for Pubmed is checked.
  4. In the OpenURL Path field put: http://carleton-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/openurl/01BRC_CCO/01BRC_CCO_SERVICES?
  5. Where it says "Authenticate With URL" paste the following: http://ezproxy.carleton.edu/login?url=

 NOTE:  You MUST download both the installer and the license files below to the same directory on your computer.

If you are updating a previous version of EndNote, please back-up your library and uninstall the older version before proceeding.

 

1) Install EndNote:

  1. Make sure no applications are running—ESPECIALLY be sure to close Microsoft Word.
  2. Download the EndNote Installer and the License.dat files from the links below.  Make sure they are both saved to the same folder on your computer.
  3. If you are asked for a product key, cancel out of the install and make sure that you didn't already have an older version of the license.dat file.  Re-download the license.dat, and make sure it is named license.dat -- with no numbers -- and that it is in the same folder as the EndNote installer
