Literature management with EndNote

EndNote is a commercial software to manage references. It is able to collect, organize, and save a vast variety of text types. Additionally, via plugin for word processing programs, it enables you to create citations and bibliographies in various standardized styles.

One special feature of EndNote is its integrated option to search library catalogues and online databases (e.g. PubMed or Web of Science).

Martin-Luther-University holds a site license for this software. EndNote can be used by the staff, faculty members and students of our university for their studies, teaching and research. Either at university or remote. The program runs on Windows and Mac OS.

The current training dates and registration information can be found on our blog.

Please note the registration information for courses given on this site.

Further courses (e.g. in English language, in connection with a lecture / seminar, or for a workgroup) can be arranged by contacting .

Adding the ULB library catalogue or the GVK

You can integrate the library catalogue of the ULB to EndNote.

Unfortunately, EndNote in its current version uses incorrect connection details. We are working for a solution on this problem. In the meantime, please follow this guide if you want to use our catalogues:

At first, please download the connection details of MLU Halle-Wittenberg    from the EndNote-website. If the download fails, please visit the EndNote-website   . You can find the right file at “downloads” --> “connection files for online databases”. Please, search for “halle”.

After the original data has been integrated into EndNote it should look like this:

EndNote Original files for adding ULB

EndNote Original files for adding ULB

EndNote Original files for adding ULB

After the connection data has been integrated into EndNote, the false data has to be edited.

  • Please, click edit --> connection files --> open connection manager
  • Please, search the list for “U Halle-Wittenberg” right-click on it --> edit connection
  • If you want to use the catalogue of ULB Saxony-Anhalt, please use the data as given in the picture below.

If you rather want to use the catalogue of the whole GVK, please use the data as given in the following picture:

The field “Information Provider” can be filled independently. Please, do not forget to save the edited connection data after you are finished. You also can give this connection a new name.

Afterwards, please shut down the whole program and restart it. Now you can use the new connection data at “online search” --> “more”. If you are asked for a user ID, please use your ULB access data.
