  2. Click on the My EndNote Basic link at the very top of the first page.
  3. Click Register, and follow the instructions.
  4. You will receive a registration email with your login information. Save this!
  5. Once you are registered, you can go directly to the EndNote Basic page anytime and from anywhere:

  • Capture
    The Capture Reference allows you to import citations to your account  To use it, browse to a page you like and click the Capture Reference button in the Bookmarks bar. The Capture Reference window will open. Follow the instructions in the window.extension .

For Alumni

Thomson/Reuters, the providers of EndNote Web, require that all users of campus subscriptions log on from "authorized" computers every 12 months. An "authorized" computer is one on campus or one accessing Web of Science through the database login. Since alumni do not have off campus database access, the only alumni access to EndNote Web via an authorized computer is on campus.

If you cannot come to campus, you may wish to investigate a personal subscription to Refworks, a personal copy of the EndNote software, or the services on the Alternatives to EndNote Web tab.
