Important information for EndNote on Mac users

EndNote on Mac users information: install all available updates or upgrade to Endnote X9

Apple will soon be upgrading its operating system to macOS 10.15 Catalina. While annual OS upgrades are to be expected, this one will have an important twist for EndNote on Mac users. Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support with this release, which will impact EndNote. 

If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow. If you are running EndNote X8 or earlier, Clarivate (who own EndNote) recommends upgrading to EndNote X9, as based on early information from Apple, your current version will not work with macOS Catalina.

You may also choose not to upgrade to Catalina, to avoid compatibility issues. Download instructions and more information on the issue is on the library website. As more information becomes available, we will keep you informed.
