EndNote X7 is a software tool for publishing and managing bibliographies. La Trobe University has a site licence, which permits all eligible staff and students of the University to use the software both at work and at home.

EndNote and Mac OS 10.12 compatability

Important! There are compatibility issues with EndNote X7 and Mac OS 10.12 "Sierra". EndNote are recommending that users do not upgrade to Mac OS 10.12 until EndNote X8 is released. When released, EndNote X8 will be fully compliant with Mac OS 10.12.

Download and install EndNote.
