EndNote is a bibliographic management tool that allows users to create and organize a library of citations and abstracts and then insert them into a Microsoft Word document.
The Lamar Soutter Library is pleased to provide the University of Massachusetts Medical School with EndNote software for both Windows and Mac users.
The latest version of the software offered by the library (as of May 2019) is EndNote X9.
The license covers UMMS students, faculty and staff, and staff of our clinical partner, UMass Memorial Health Care. The software can be installed on UMMS or UMMHC computers and up to two personal computers per user.
School Provided or Personal Computer Installation Instructions for EndNote X9 on Windows:
EndNote is also available from the Software Center which may be available on your UMMS provided computer

Please note: If you are running OS 10.15 Catalina or higher you MUST use EndNote X9 or the program will not be compatible; all older EndNote versions are 32-bit applications and will not be supported by Mac beginning fall 2019. Please be sure to allow all EndNote updates as requested to avoid impacting the program's functionality. Source: https://bit.ly/33J6SYO

Getting the error message: Word was unable to load an add-in. Your add-in isn't compatible with this version of Word. Please contact the add-in provider for an update.
Solution: Enable Apple’s Rosetta service for Word. Do this by closing Word, right clicking (or command click) its name in the applications list, selecting get info, and then checking the run using Rosetta option. Once you do that, try opening Word. Reach out to the library if this doesn’t resolve the issue. More details here: https://support.clarivate.com/Endnote/s/article/EndNote-Apple-M1-chip-compatibility?language=en_US
