To download EndNote please follow the steps below. If you have any issues during this process please contact the library.

  1. Click on EndNote_X7.zip. You'll be asked for your UTS login details, and then taken to the downloading site. Click on the link that you see there with this name and save the file to your Desktop (in some browsers such as Chrome the file is automatically saved to your Downloads folder, this is OK). The saved file will be called EndNote_X7.zip
  2. Right click on the saved file and select Extract All ... (if you don't see this option, use Extract here (in new folder) instead. You may need to choose PeaZip to see this).
  3. Follow prompts and files will be extracted to a new folder called EndNote_X7.
  4. Open this folder and double click on the ENX7Inst.msi file (this file can have a different name in earlier versions)
  5. Follow the prompts to install the configuration you require. If you are asked for a product key, this is because you have not properly extracted the file as instructed in steps 2 and 3 above. Make sure you are installing from the file in the extracted folder, not from the file of the same name in the zip folder you downloaded. You should not be asked for a product key. After installation has been completed, you can delete the two EndNote_X7 folders (the zipped one and the extracted one) from your desktop.

Macintosh

Before downloading, please make sure you have the correct system and word processor requirements (to find your system version, go to the Apple menu in the Finder on your computer and choose About This Macintosh, or About This Computer). EndNote X7 will work with all recent versions of Mac OS (ie 10.6 or later) and Word for Mac. Users of Pages (Apple's word processing program) should use either Pages 5.2 or Pages '09. More information about Pages can be found on EndNote's system requirements page.

EndNote's Support Site has more information on compatibility with word processing software. If you need to download an earlier version of EndNote, you should see earlier versions when you follow step 1 below.

To extract the download file you will need to have Stuffit Expander installed on your Macintosh (this should already be installed).

To download EndNote to your Macintosh, please follow the steps below. If you have any issues during this process please contact the library.

  1. Click on EndNote X7 Site Installer.dmg. You'll be asked for your UTS login details, and then taken to the downloading site. Click on the link that you see there with this name and save the file to your Desktop.
  2. With some browsers, the file automatically saves into the Downloads folder: that's OK.
  3. Click on the downloaded file and then follow prompts. If you are asked to drag an EndNote folder, you will see an arrow pointing to a picture of your Applications folder. Drag the EndNote folder onto this picture. This starts the first part of the installation process.
  4. You should not be asked for a product key. If you get asked for a product key, there was probably a problem with the downloading process. The easiest thing to do is cancel the installation process, delete the downloaded file, and start again (from step 1 above). If the problem still occurs, contact the Library.
  5. Once the first part of the installation process is done, open your Applications folder. You'll see a folder labelled EndNote: open it and then click on the EndNote icon you'll see there. This will complete the installation process. Once EndNote is fully installed, the downloaded .dmg file may be deleted.

Harvard UTS Style

Click on the link Harvard (UTS) style

  • If you are using a PC with Internet Explorer, choose Open.
  • If you are using a PC with Firefox, choose Open with EndNote then OK.
  • If using Chrome, the style will automatically save into your Downloads folder. In that case, open the downloaded file; you may need to choose to Open with EndNote.
  • If you are using a Mac, most browsers will automatically save the style into your Downloads folder. If using Safari, you may need to click on the link above while holding down the Control key, then save to your Downloads folder. Open the file from there.

If you are having trouble with this process, check to see if the filename contains a .txt extension. If so, remove this extension. If you are using a Mac and still having trouble with this try our Downloading Harvard UTS tutorial (the video uses the old website but if you go to 1:00 in the video you should be fine from there).

When you open the file, EndNote will start and you will see details of the style displayed. Click on File, Save As. In the Save As window that appears, make sure the name of the style is listed as Harvard (UTS) - you may need to remove the word 'copy' and possibly some other text - and then click on Save. Close the style window.

In EndNote, you should now be able to Select Another Style... in the drop down styles window. Scroll through the list of styles, select Harvard (UTS), and click on Choose.

On some Macs, you don't see the style in the list. In this case, open your Applications folder, then EndNote X7. You'll see a folder called Styles. Drag your saved style from the Downloads folder onto this Styles folder. Go back to EndNote, and you should now see it in the list when you Select Another Style.

Connecting to UTS Library Catalogue

To download the UTS Library connection file:

  1. Click on UTS Library EndNote Connection, and follow the instructions above to save and open the connection file.
  2. When you open the file, EndNote will start and you will see some details about the connection file. Click on File, Save As.
  3. In the Save As window that appears, ensure that the Connection Name is U Technology Sydney (you may have to remove the word "copy" and perhaps some other text, and replace text such as "%20" with a space).
  4. Then click on Save and close the connection file window.
  5. With your EndNote library open, click on More... in the Online Search section and select U Technology Sydney from the list.
  6. On some Macs, if you don't see the file in the list, open your Applications folder, then EndNote X7. You'll see a folder called Connections. Drag your save connection from the Downloads folder onto this Connections folder. Go back to EndNote and you should see it in the list when you select More...

Connections to some other Australian library catalogues can also be restored, but some libraries do not have working connection files.

  3. Save the file to your desktop or any other convenient folder. Ensure the saved file has the following name (this should happen automatically): RefTypeTable.xml
