Downloading EndNote

Students

If you have an e-mail that ends in @jacks.sdstate.edu, you have access to the student intranet called MyState. You will need to log into MyState using the username and password for your @jacks.sdstate.edu mail account (your username is the same as the part of the e-mail before the @).

  • Log into MyState Online.
  • Go to Student Life and scroll down to the Library box.
    • If the Library box does not show up, you can search for "Library EndNote" to find the link.
  • Click on EndNote.
  • Download the appropriate installer file (Windows - use EndNote20-Windows-Installer; Mac - use EN20-Mac-Installer).

Faculty/Staff

If you have an e-mail that ends in @sdstate.edu, you have access to the faculty/staff intranet called InsideState. You will need to log into InsideState using the username and password for your @sdstate.edu mail account (your username is the same as the part of the e-mail before the @).

Installing EndNote

Microsoft Office programs

  • Make sure all Microsoft Office programs are closed before installing EndNote.

Windows

  • Unzip the file. Be sure to fully extract the files from the zipped file.
    • This step is very important - you will not be able to install EndNote if the file is not unzipped first.
  • Leave both files in the same place and run the EN20Inst file. 
  • Follow the instructions on the screen during installation. 
    • If you get a box asking for a product ID, it is probably because the files were not extracted from the zipped file properly. Make sure that you extract the files from the zipped file before installing.

Mac

  • Download the EndNote20-Mac-Installer file. 
  • Double click the downloaded file. 
  • Double click the Program Icon. 
  • Follow the instructions on the screen during installation.
