Installing Cite While You Write for EndNote Web on a university PC

If you want to use the Cite While You Write feature of EndNote Web to create your bibliography from a University PC (for example, in and IT Suite), you will need to install the toolbar using the following method.

  1. Click on the Novell Delivered Applications icon on the desktop.
  2. Click on Applications on the left hand side of the new window.
  3. Double click on the EndNote 11 (or EndNote X1) folder.
  4. Double click on the EndNote 11 icon. This will install the full desktop version of the software. It may take several minutes to complete.
  5. Once complete, close the EndNote software and start up Word.
  6. The EndNote toolbar should now be displayed (if it is not, click View > Toolbars > Endnote.)
  7. Click the EN Pref button on the EndNote toolbar.
  8. Click on the Applications Tab
  9. Select EndNote Web and click OK. Note: if you are using a university PC you should not enter your EndNote username and password on this screen.
  10. The EndNote toolbar will change to the EndNote Web toolbar and you can now use it to create your bibliography as normal.

    Hi, I’ve been using ENW since October 2007, and it has been giving me a persistent error message, when MS-Word loads,” the specified library cannot be unloaded because it is in use”. I have uninstalled and re-installed it several times. No change. While citing during my last 3 essays, it just stopped building my reference list and was giving me my cites in { } rather than in ( ). When using Vancouver referencing method, it would stop at about cite number 12, and do the same thing,several hours of work later, no reference list.
    Is there something i can do?

  3. Why is EndNoteWeb so temperamental – the website seems to be down all of the time, which is really worrying when assignments are due?
