What is EndNote?
EndNote is a software program that helps you organize references and create properly formatted bibliographies.References can be imported from online databases or can be typed in by hand. EndNote works with MicrosoftWord to produce bibliographies and embedded references in hundreds of available styles. EndNote also makes iteasy to change the style of your references.EndNote is available for Windows or Macintosh computers. Students (but not faculty or staff) are eligible for asubstantial discount through the campus bookstore. Although Information Services librarians are available toassist users and teach workshops on EndNote, it is not available for use on Library computers.
