The Library has had a campus-wide licence with EndNote since January 2009, allowing students and employees of the University of Konstanz to install EndNote on their personal computers.
This comprehensive bibliographic management program allows you to easily collect, organize and integrate literature into a text and build a bibliography. Thus making EndNote useful for both students, who are writing a lengthy thesis or final paper, as well as for academics, who want to organize bibliographical data in their research. But the program can also be used by anyone who wants to compile an electronic "box of notes" and needs a place to keep the structured and bundled information.

Installation of filter and connection-files

In order to be able to use the direct import, you must first configure a connection file. You can download it here:
