Additional Files

The Library provides some modified and additional Filters, Connection, and Styles files which are useful for this University.





 Note that any zipped files need to be 'unzipped' i.e. right-click and choose the extract command.


These notes are for Windows 7 users, connected to the UOCNT network. They may work for staff laptops that are used as the staff-member's principal computer at work, but will not generally work for other laptops. There are separate notes for Mac users. If you use a laptop that is connected to the UC Network at times, but not at other times then see these notes.

For windows 7 users you can install Endnote X7 - from the 'Uninstall or Change a program' box use the left-hand link 'Install a program from the network' and choose 'Thomson Reuters EndNote X7.2.0'. - existing X7 users can upgrade to X7.2 by choosing 'Thomson Reuters EndNote X7.2.0 (upgrade)'

Always back up your EndNote libraries before doing anything major with EndNote.

Before you start, ensure Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Outlook) is closed.

If you have an earlier version of EndNote, you don't need to uninstall it, although it is recommended. The new version will override the old one and you will not  lose all your EndNote Library/Libraries saved in the old version.

Step by step installation

  1. Click on the Start button and select Control Panel
  2. Select Get Programs, Rund Advertised Programs
    This screen varies in look, depending on your settings.

    3. Select Thompson Reuters Endnote X7.0.1. from the program list. Click on Install  then download to start installation. Remember to tick the Run program automatically when download completes box.
     Warning: in some cases the list may show as Endnote X7.0.1 ... rather than as Thompson Reuters ...

The download will complete and the download box will disappear. At this stage Endnote will be installing in the background. You can shut down the Control Panel windows. Don't open Word for about 5 minutes, at which stage you should see Endnote X7 in your Start, Programs folder.

  1. When the installation has finished, do the following in this order (you need to do this only once to ensure the Endnote Toolbar is installed into Word):
    • start Endnote
    • open an Endnote Library
    • Start Word and check the Endnote toolbar is present.

If you encounter problems after installing EndNote, see the help given on our problems page.
