EndNote X7 is available on the workroom Macintosh machines. No extra installation should be necessary. Style, Filters and Connection files are linked to the Library Volume and will be updated automatically as needed.
Ask your Mac Support consultant to install EndNote for you from the CANTM1 distribution server.
Once this is done you will need to update the Connection, Style and Filter files by copying the folders from the EndNote Extras folder and loading them into the corresponding existing folders inside the EndNote folder on your own computer.
Check with your consultant if you are unsure about how to do this. You should also reload these files from time to time, as they will be updated by the Library as databases are changed, added, replaced or deleted.
Download the software from the EndNote Software page . If by any chance you cannot download the software, you can borrow the EndNote installation CD-ROM from the ICT Service Desk. You'll be asked to show your UC ID. Install the software following the instructions on the EndNote disc.
The company that supplies EndNote notes that the Safari browser will not seamlessly allow direct export into EndNote - apparently there is a security setting in Safari which prevents this. However, there is a method that apparently works nearly as well; they provide the following details:
'It is possible to use Direct Export with Safari under the Mac OS. When the file is downloaded from whichever database you are using, simply drag the file to the EndNote icon on the Dock. EndNote will then open and prompt for the Library in which to import the file. It is not as seamless as the 'normal' Windows process, but it does work.'
MAC computers might need for the file extentions to be recognized.
Open the Finder and the location of the downloaded Endnote files. Select a .ris (Default EndNote) file, .ciw (Web of Science) file or an .enw (Google Scholar) file.
Select the Get Info from the File Menu.
In the Open with section click the applications selection bar.
Select EndNote from the Applications Folder
Make sure the Always Open With is selected.
Click on Add.
