EndNote and EndNote Web


EndNote® is software to help you manage bibliographic citations and create bibliographies in a variety of styles (e.g. APA, MLA, JAMA). 

With EndNote®  you can:

Save citations Organize citations into groups          Attach .pdf files
Enter citations Add notes and keywords Annotate pdfs
Select citation styles        Create bibliographies Cite While You Write


EndNote stands in between the places you find citations and your Word document.
It stores and lets you sort and organize your citations, and holds other descriptive information and files (such as pdfs) associated with those citations.

In your Word document, you can reach into EndNote and insert in-text references along with footnote or endnote references according to a wide variety of styles.

EndNote Web has many of the same features as the full version but it is simpler to use and is accessible via the web.
You can save records and pdfs in EndNote Web and sync them with your main EndNote library.

Be Vigilant!

EndNote isn't a substitute for knowing your style manual.

It isn't magic: if references are entered incorrectly in EndNote, the citations generated will be flawed.
