In Brief

Library Tip: EndNote X4 for Windows
Kresge Library staff have announced The Scripps Research Institute release of publishing and bibliography management software EndNote X4 for Windows. EndNote X4 is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, and with the office products MS Office 2003, 2007, and 2010 (32 bit only), as well as OpenOffice.org Writer 3.

The software is available to current Scripps Research faculty, staff, students, and employees. You may download the software at: http://www.scripps.edu/library/Endnote.html. You will need your Scripps Research email (without the "@scripps.edu" part) and password to download the software.

NOTE: The typical download includes only 100 Output Styles. If you would like the entire list of over 4,500 styles, you must choose the "Custom Download" option. Then under "Select Features," click on the "X" next to "Additional Styles." Choose the option "Will be installed on local hard drive." This will take a few minutes longer to install than the typical installation. Alternatively, you can find and download only the additional styles you need from the EndNote website at http://www.endnote.com under "Support and Services."

Thomson Reuters, the makers of EndNote, estimate that EndNote X4 for Macintosh will be released at the end of the summer or the end of September.
