EndNote 21

Upstate Managed Computers 


EndNote is available in the Software Center. From the start menu, locate the Software Center icon or type 'Software Center' to search for it. Once you are in the Software Center, go to the Applications tab, find and click EndNote. Then select 'Install'.

Please contact the IMT Help Desk at 4-4115 or [email protected] with installation issues using the software center.


For Upstate-owned Macintosh computers running the JAMF management software, you should be able to install EndNote using the "Upstate Applications" app, which is located in your "Applications" folder or through the icon in the dock. If you do not have the Upstate Applications app, please follow the Personal Computer installation steps below.
