Microsoft Word Plugins for Zotero and Mendeley No Longer Supported

Since KUMC managed computers no longer support the Microsoft Word plugins for Zotero and Mendeley, we highly recommend our staff, researchers, faculty and students use the KUMC licensed bibliographic management tool, Endnote.

While we have included information about Zotero and Mendeley in our Research Guide for using bibliographic citation management tools, library instruction and troubleshooting offered by librarian liaisons from A. R. Dykes Library will be limited to Endnote.

KUMC faculty, staff and students may download the current version of EndNote via myKUMC:
  • Click Tools & Services
  • Select Units & Departments
  • Select Information Resources
  • Look for Popular Items in the right hand panel, select Software Available to Download
  • Select the appropriate EndNote file to download, i.e., Windows or Mac
