Step 5: Managing your Endnote Library
The Endnote Referencing desktop software is provided free to all UWA Staff and Students. You can download a copy for your personal computer from the University's Software Centre.
There are just a few things to watch out for when setting up your EndNote desktop software - the most important being to make sure the license file you have downloaded - the License.dat file - is in the same folder as the installation files - ENX9Inst.msi - before starting to install EndNote.
So make sure you download these instructions and follow them to successfully download Endnote from the Software Center.

Referencing styles refer to the rules for how to write out references; what information to include and the order to write it in.
The Endnote software installation comes with a large number of pre-loaded referencing style files. The referencing style files pre-loaded into Endnote are what helps to automate the creation of individual references within Endnote and in MS Word.

Follow the links to these Referencing guides for information about how to download these referencing styles and get them into your Endnote.
If you have successfully installed your Endnote desktop software, you will find that your version of MS Word now includes an EndNote tab.
This is the main way in which you will later insert references into your documents as you work and toggle from MS Word to your Endnote Library.
After you have successfully installed Endnote open a Word file and check for the Endnote tab. Contact us to troubleshoot if it is not there.
