Why Use EndNote?

EndNote (installed on all library & lab computers) makes it easy to compile and store your bibliographic data.

  • Create and correctly format citations and bibliographies
  • Keep all of your references in one location.

All relevant files (connection, output style and help guides) are linked on the right side of this page.

Output Styles

What Other Files Will I Need?

Modified Output Style

An Output style displays your data according to the Chicago Manual of Style. We use a modified version of Chicago 16thA.

This output style is continually being updated in response to your questions. Open and save the file into your Endnote Styles folder. Click the Chicago 16thA modified output style at right and choose to open it with EndNote. From within EndNote, you will then save the file:

  • Macs & PCs: File —> Save as

If you will cite a number of blogs, online multimedia, or Luther's Works, be sure also to download the .xml file linked. Save the .xml file to your desktop. If your browser opens the file instead of downloading it, right-click or Ctrl + click the link. Then, open EndNote. Once EndNote is open:

  • Edit —> Preferences. Choose Reference Types from the list at left. Then under Reference Type Table, choose Import. Find the .xml file that you saved to your desktop and choose Open and then (PC) Apply or (Mac) Open and then save..

Modified Output Style - Annotated Bibliographies [Chicago_16th_A_02212013_Annotated]

This output style makes it easy for you to create an annotated Bibliography that lists basic information (author, title, publisher, year) and the annotations for each citation. Open and save the file into your Endnote Styles folder. The annotation goes in the Abstract data field.
