UCL staff and students - download EndNote software to your own personal computer

Exciting news! It is now possible for UCL staff and students to download EndNote software onto a home personal computer (PC or Mac) from the UCL Software Database.

By doing so you are agreeing to the terms and conditions for home use of software. You will receive an email once you have downloaded it to inform you of this, which includes that you have to remove it from your computer when you leave UCL.
EndNote will also continue to be available on Desktop@UCL computers and on the UCL Remote Desktop.
A couple of things to note: When you download the software it is version X9 that is downloaded and when you open it you are then prompted to do update to X9.2, which is the latest version.If you normally use the Find Full Text option to automatically attach PDFs to references in your EndNote Library, the settings for searching for UCL-subscribed papers are not included in the download. You will need to add them themselves following the instructions in our guide.
