EndNote X9 Now Available for NIH Staff

The NIH Library is excited to announce that EndNote X9 is now available for all NIH staff to download through the NIH Library subscription.

What is EndNote X9?

EndNote is a reference management tool, and X9 is the latest version available. With EndNote X9, you can find, download, organize and share citations in a searchable database, making it easier to write manuscripts and manage CVs. New features in X9 include:

  • New reference types: discussion forum, TV episode, social media, and multimedia applications
  • Citation reports: ability to generate Web of Science citation reports from within EndNote by selecting a group from your desktop
  • Manuscript matcher: ability to create a list of potential journals to publish in for the paper you are writing
    • Group sharing: ability to share your groups with colleagues right from your EndNote desktop with both read-only or read-and-write access.
  • Sharing permissions: ability to choose whether you share a library with full Read-write permissions or the new Read-only mode

How Do I Download EndNote X9?

NOTE: You must have NIH credentials to access the software download page in the NIH Library website, and you will need administrative rights on your computer to install EndNote X9.

  1. Contact your IT support group to request administrative rights on your computer for EndNote software installation. They may also be able to help you with the installation.
  2. Go to the NIH Library EndNote Download page. Please note that NIH authentication is required to access this page.
  3. Follow the instructions on that page to initiate the software download for your Windows or Mac computer, as appropriate.
