EndNote X3, the latest version of the reference management software, has been available to NUS staff and students via the Software Catalogue since September 2009. For a guide to installing and using EndNote, check out http://www.lib.nus.edu.sg/lion/e/endnoteguide.html.
Have you been unable to locate certain output or journal citation styles in EndNote?
To facilitate faster start-up, the typical installation for EndNote X3 was designed to install only the 100 most popular output styles, connection files and filters. If you installed EndNote X3 between September to December last year, you will be unable to find many output styles and library catalogue connections.
To resolve this issue, the NUS Libraries EndNote Team and Computer Centre worked with Thomson-Reuters, the software producer. From this month, typical installation (for Windows only) now installs all connections/output styles/filters (including connection to LINC) by default. If you are unable to locate output styles in your EndNote X3 installed before January 2010, do re-install via the Computer Centre Software Catalogue. Alternatively, Windows and Mac users can download additional journal citation styles as well as suggest new styles to be created in future EndNote updates by visiting http://www.endnote.com/support/enstyles.asp.
For enquiries on installation via Software Catalogue, including the transfer of licenses from one computer to another, please contact IT Care.
