The EndNote desktop software is installed on most computers at our Australian campuses and is also freely available for Australia-based Curtin students and staff to download to a personal computer. The program can be downloaded from the My Library tab in Student OASIS or by selecting the Home menu and Library services for staff in the Staff Portal. Click on Download EndNote for instructions on installing EndNote. The download differs between Windows and Mac so please select the relevant operating system when prompted.
Once you have installed the program, you will need to create an EndNote library to store your references. Although you have the ability to create multiple libraries, it is highly recommended that you only create and work from one library to avoid unnecessary complications.
Your EndNote library consists of two files: a .enl (EndNote library) file and a .Data folder. It is important that both of these remain together in the same location and that they use the same name. Your EndNote library will not work if the data folder is deleted or separated from the .enl file.
