EndNote is Ready to Use

EndNote, a citation management tool, is ready for all UA students and faculty. Here are some of the major characteristics of EndNote highlighted at a workshop offered by Rodgers Library for Science and Engineering on Friday:

• End Note is a citation management tool
• EndNote is a desktop application while RefWorks is a web-based application
• Start by creating a new EndNote library
• Most databases have an export function to EndNote (examples, SciFinder and Scopus)
• When you are ready to export choose RIS format
• With tabs on the far right side of your EndNote Library you can import citations, metadata, and articles in PDF format
• Simply highlight citations in your EndNote Library and then click on FIND FULL TEXT and it will import PDFs (if we have access to the resource)
• Existing articles on one’s hard drive can be imported to EndNote as well
• EndNote has many bibliographic styles to choose from and many more can be added
• Word has an EndNote Plug In for citing within text and preparing references at the end of documents
• If a citation is incorrect while in Word, make a change in EndNote and the Word document will update automatically

EndNote is a powerful piece of software. It streamlines and simplifies citation management. As an added bonus EndNote creates a fully searchable library for later use. EndNote information.
