EndNote Law: Install

Note: this page has been updated to take account of the release of the AGLC 4th edition.

This study guide has been designed to bring together all the links you need in order to install and use EndNote for law. At UTS the EndNote legal referencing style is based on the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (4th edition, 2018) (this is a view-only pdf) published by the Melbourne University Law Review, and is called AGLC4 (UTS).

To use this style with EndNote you will need to download and save 2 small files:

  • Legal Reference Types e.g. Reported Cases, Legislation, Parliamentary Debates, Treaties, Books, Journal Articles etc
  • AGLC4 (UTS) style: this allows you to correctly format references and use them with Word. It should be available on UTS computers in public areas, but you can download the style from this page on those computers in the meantime. 

More information on how to use EndNote with AGLC style can be found on our EndNote Law: Tips page, and examples of how to create different types of references can be found on our EndNote Law: Citations page.

The latest version, EndNote X9, is recommended, but it is fine to use an earlier version if you wish.

Instructions for installing the Legal Reference Types, and AGLC4 (UTS) style

First, Download and Install EndNote. Then:

Step 1: Install the special Legal Reference Types

  • Right click on Reference Types Table (Macintosh users should click on the link while holding down the Control key on your keyboard. If this does not seem to work in Safari or Chrome, try using Firefox as a browser).
  • In Firefox or Chrome, select "Save Link As". In Safari select "Download Linked File As". In Internet Explorer, select "Save Target As".
  • Save the file to your desktop or any other convenient folder. Don't worry about the file name, it should be something like: RefTypeTableAGLC4.xml
  • Open EndNote and click on Edit (on a Mac click on EndNote X9 instead of Edit) then Preferences then Reference Types.
  • Click on the Import button in the lower half of window and select the file you just saved.
  • Click on Open - Apply - OK (on a Mac click on Open - Save).
  • Close the Edit Preferences window.

Step 2: Download the AGLC4 Reference Style

  • Click on AGLC4 (UTS)
    • If using Firefox, choose "Open with EndNote" and click on OK. In Internet Explorer, choose "Open". If using Chrome or Safari, the file will be automatically saved into your Downloads folder. If so, go to the Downloads folder and open the saved file from there.
  • EndNote will start and the style window will open, showing you details of the style. Click on File, Save As.
  • In the Save As window that appears, make sure the name of the style is listed as AGLC4 (UTS) - you may need to remove the word "copy" and possibly some other text. You may also need to capitalise the style name. Then click on Save.
  • Close the style window.

Step 3: Select AGLC4 (UTS) as your Output Style

  • Open EndNote and open or create a new EndNote library.
  • Choose Select Another Style... in the dropdown styles window. This is in the top left of the library (Windows) or in the bottom right of the library (Mac).
  • Scroll through the list of styles, select AGLC4 (UTS), and click on Choose.
  • Some Mac users may be unable to see the AGLC4 style in the list of styles. If this happens, open your Applications folder, then the EndNote X[version] folder. You should see a folder named Styles. Drag your saved AGLC4 (UTS) style from step 2 above, from the Downloads folder into this folder. You should now be able to see AGLC4 (UTS) in the style list (don't worry if there is a bit of extra text after the style name, though you can rename it if you like).

AGLC not working

<p>Hi there,</p><p>I've tried to download AGLC a few times now and it hasn't worked. I'm following the instructions and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.</p>

Hi Anita (and James)

<p>Hi Anita (and James)</p><p>there seems to have been a recent update to the Mac OS that is preventing the style from saving correctly.</p><p>The workaround is: click on the AGLC link and instead of opening, Save it somewhere. Your browser might do this anyway.</p><p>Then go to Applications -&gt;EndNote X7 -&gt; Styles, and drag your saved AGLC style into this styles folder. You should then see it in EndNote when you use the drop-down to select another style.</p><p>Hope this helps</p><p>Patrick</p>

<p>Hi Jayneil</p><p>you're correct, the AGLC style doesn't seem to be on these Macs. I'll follow up on that.</p><p>Meanwhile, you can install it yourself as follows:</p><p>-Save the AGLC style from the link on this page (it will probably save to the Downloads folder)</p><p>-Open&nbsp;the Applications Folder on the Mac, then the EndNote X7 folder. You should see a folder&nbsp;called Styles.</p><p>-Drag the saved AGLC style (probably&nbsp;from your downloads folder) and drop it onto that Styles folder.</p><p>-Then go&nbsp;back&nbsp;to EndNote, and use the style drop down to Select Another Style, and select AGLC (UTS) which you should now see in the list.</p><p>You'll also need to import the Reference Types table - follow the instructions on this page.</p><p>Unfortunately the saved style and reference types won't be kept when you log off the Mac, so you'll need to do this each time you use one of the library Macs, at least for the moment.</p><p>Cheers</p><p>Patrick</p>

<p>Hi Dhiresh</p><p>the file you need is the EndNoteX7.zip one.</p><p>Once installed, EndNote should start to automatically update, but this is not critical.</p><p>As for the error message, I'm not sure. Can you bring your computer in to the library? If so, send me an email at patrick.tooth@uts.edu.au and we can arrange an appointment.</p><p>Regards</p><p>Patrick</p>

<p>Hi Dhiresh</p><p>I think your best strategy is to contact ITD, either by phone on 95142222 or at one of their help desks (Building 5C behind the Art of Food Cafe, or in the Tower).</p><p>Regards</p><p>Patrick</p>
