WPI students, faculty and staff can download EndNote 20 from the WPI Software Library -- click on the relevant EndNote Install Guide. Both Windows and macOS versions are available. [EndNote X9 is also still available for download.]
Note: For EndNote desktop to sync with EndNote Web (Basic) you must have version X7.1 or higher. To check for updates open EndNote desktop choose the Help menu and choose Check for Updates

To check for full-text availability via the WPI subscriptions, select a reference (or multiple references) in your EndNote library. Click on References (on the menu bar), then "Find Full Text". EndNote should retrieve the full text if available. If not, you can try References, URL, Open URL to get to the FullText Finder window with retrieval options. For items we do not have access to, you may need to choose Request (ILLiad Interlibrary Loan).
To set up the WPI Library Catalog connection in order to search for books, project reports, and items within the WPI library collection from within EndNote, follow these steps.
What's the Difference between EndNote & EndNote Web? How do they interact?
EndNote Web is a web-based citation management tool with fewer features. EndNote X9 or 20 users, within Preferences, can connect to and even upgrade their EndNote Web account. We suggest you upgrade to enable more features such as access to PDFs within their online libraries.
ENW is a great option for serious researchers who wish to share parts of their personal EndNote libraries with others. EndNote Web compliments EndNote and allows sharing of references with other EndNote Web users. EndNote X9 or 20 groups (except for smart groups) are synced within EndNote Web.
To enable within EndNote, go to EndNote preferences, Sync. Click Enable Sync. Enter your EndNote web username (your WPI email) and your password for EndNote Web, which is probably different from your WPI password. [For new users, you can also set up your ENW account by clicking on Enable Sync.]
