EndNote vs. EndNote Basic
EndNote is a software program purchased by individuals (not the library) and loaded on their personal computers.
EndNote Basic is the web version of this software, which requires no downloading or installation (aside from the optional plugins). Andruss Library has a subscription to EndNote Basic via the Web of Science database. Note: access does NOT include the EndNote desktop software. If you are interested in a personal copy of the EndNote software, most bookstores and computer stores have it available, or you can purchase it on the EndNote website: http://endnote.com/enpurchase.asp
