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 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
