The End of EndNote Desktop

**As a result of AU's current financial situation and after careful consideration of usage, we are canceling our subscription to EndNote Desktop and it will no longer be valid as of May 14, 2021. After that date, no use of the software as provided by American University is permitted.** For more information, see The End of EndNote Desktop

The library support team is ready to assist faculty members and students in learning about other citations management programs, such as EndNote Basic, Mendeley, or Zotero. These are often considered to be easier to use than EndNote Desktop, and they have the capabilities that most EndNote Desktop users require. In addition, by using a free program, students will be able to access their citations after they graduate.

Most Recent EndNote Version
