The University of Bath has a site licence to EndNote, which is held by DD&T. The licence permits University of Bath staff and students to download the EndNote software to their home PC or Mac.
To download the software go to Secure Downloads:
Login - click Available downloads - then Software Application - EndNote
You will see 5 files. The most current version of EndNote desktop software is EndNote 20. The previous version i.e. version 19 (known as X9) is also available. Read the pdf installation guide first, then download the version you want, using the Windows or Mac version as appropriate:
First close any Microsoft Office applications that you have open. Decide which version to install first i.e. X9 or 20.
Click on EndNote[version]VolumeInstall.zip and download it. In this example X9 is being downloaded: click on EndNoteX9VolumeInstall.zip and download it.
Open the downloaded file to see something like this:
DO NOT double-click the folder to start the installation: click “Extract” in the menu bar at the top of the window, then click “Extract all” and then “Extract”.
If you do not extract the file properly, you will be asked for the site administration code.
Your EndNote program will contain many pre-installed referencing styles, but it will not include Harvard (Bath) style, which has been created by the University of Bath.
If you are brand-new to using EndNote, the next step will be to create a Library.
Click File – New and choose where you want your library to be located.
You can change the name of the library but make sure you keep the default file type .enl
You can either:
In EndNote X9 go to Tools – Sync. Enter your Endnote online login details and follow the instructions. If you have a large number of references it could take several minutes to transfer them.
In EndNote 20 go to Library - Sync. Enter your Endnote online login details and follow the instructions. If you have a large number of references it could take several minutes to transfer them.
