EndNoteX7 & X8 download

Older versions of EndNote (X7 and X8) are available for download if you are experiencing issues with EndNote X9. However, please note the following:

Apple is expected to release the new macOS Catalina in September 2019. If you plan to upgrade your Mac to macOS Catalina you will need to install EndNote X9 as EndNote X7 and X8 may no longer work once you upgrade. EndNote is a 32-bit application and Catalina will only support 64-bit applications. Clarivate is currently working to upgrade EndNote X9 to be 64-bit compatible.
