Yes, you most probably can.

This is how you would do it on a Windows machine:

In LO Writer go to the Tools menu and choose Extension Manager. Click Add in the Extension Manager window, navigate to the folder : Program Files\EndNote X5\Product-Support\CWYW. Select the EndNote.oxt file and click Open. The Endnote extension will now appear in the list. Exit LibreOffice Writer and then restart it. The Endnote X5 toolbar and a new top menu entry named EndNote X5 appears between Tools and Window.

It worked for me with Endnote X5 and LibreOffice on a Windows XP SP3 machine.

I think it should be pretty similar on a Mac (i.e. find and install the Endnote.oxt extension)

I'm an avid endnote user and I recently had to uninstall and reinstall windows so I lost my Microsoft office and installed libreoffice instead. This post told me exactly what to do to be able to use endnote with libreoffice. The instructions are easy to follow and it works well!

Thanks for the post. It helped me to use EndNote x7 with office writer in Windows 7.

Don't think Endnote can ever be used as such with LibreOffice or other non-MS software. Maybe this question/answer can help you: <

Thanks for the great Post, I wouldn't have figured this out on my own. BTW, Pedro's answer works also for Endnote x6 for Windows 7.
