What is EndNote Web?

EndNote Web is a bibliographic citation manager.

What does that mean?
A bibliographic citation is any reference to a book, journal article, video, or other source that you might use in an academic paper or article. EndNote Web allows you to 'manage' those citations by saving them, organizing them, and formating them.

EndNote vs. EndNote Web

EndNote is a software program loaded on a personal computer. EndNote Web is the web version of that software that requires no downloading or installation (aside from the optional plugins). Andruss Library has a subscription to EndNote Web (via Web of Science) and does NOT provide the software. If you are interested in a personal copy of the EndNote software, most bookstores and computer stores have it available, or try the EndNote website:

Using EndNote Web

This guide will show you how to do some basic things with EndNote Web:

  1. Sign up for an account with EndNote Web.
  2. Import citations from popular databases.
  3. Organize your citations.
  4. Format your citations.

There are more detailed tutorials and help files within EndNote Web. This guide will get you started.
