Create Your Own EndNote Web Account

NOTE:  The University Libraries currently have a one year subscription to EndNote Online and we anticipate that our current budget  will not allow us to continue this subscription beyond June 2015.  Our current expectation is that EndNote desktop offered in labs and on other university owned computers will continue.  Citations stored in EndNote Online will no longer be available after June 30, 2015.   We are developing alternatives for downloading any citations that you have stored in EndNote Online.  Contact Mary Krautter at with questions.


If you are on campus on a desktop computer or on the UNCG Faculty/Staff/Student Wireless

  1. Create your own account at  If you  need help, please email  Mary Krautter (

  3. After one year, you need to follow these steps again to renew your account.

Be Aware that...

You cannot use the Firefox extension for EndNote Web in conjunction with EndNote desktop. The extension will override the desktop and all citations will be saved to EndNote Web. You must disable or remove the extension to use EndNote desktop.

When using Zotero (Firefox), the Zotero preferences must be set to allow EndNote (Desktop) or EndNote Web  to capture citations.  To change the settings go to Zotero Preferences, General, Miscellaneous, and find the box titled "Use Zotero for downloaded RIS/Refer files." Checking the box will allow Zotero to capture citations using the Endnote function in databases. removing the check will allow the citations to save to EndNote.  The change will require restarting Firefox.
