EndNote Online

Directions on how to use and how to move your references from other programs like RefWorks.

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 purchased by individuals (not the library) and loaded on their personal computers.

EndNote Oline 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 Online (via the Web of Science database), but it does NOT provide the EndNote 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

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.
  5. Import your old citations from Refworks.

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