Library Tip: EndNote for Macs
Kresge Library staff are happy to announce that the latest version of EndNote for Macintosh, X2, is now available for Scripps Research faculty, postdocs, students, and employees, from the Kresge Library download page. EndNote X2 for Macintosh (OS X 10.4.x, 10.5.x) works with MS Word X, 2004, and 2008. If you would like to download the software, please follow the instructions on the download page. You will need to enter your Scripps Research email (without the @scripps.edu) and password, and you must be on the campus intranet or VPN for the download to work. If your computer has an earlier version of EndNote, you may wish to copy and paste custom filters, styles, or connection files to another folder on your computer, and back up any libraries. The software requires that you uninstall earlier versions after copying custom files. To do this, drag the old EndNote folder from your Applications folder to the Trash. Additional information can be found at the EndNote web site at www.endnote.com, maintained by Thomson Reuters, ResearchSoft. If you have questions or would like assistance with the download, please contact the Scripps Research EndNote site administrator, Angela Murrell, at x4-8705 or email amurrell@scripps.edu.
