  • Access, update and maintain references to publications from multiple devices.
  • Import references from library catalogs, indexes and databases and the Internet.
  • Organize and group references by subject or any other system.
  • Create and format references for bibliographies in a variety of styles.
  • Share references with colleagues.

This guide contains information on using EndNote, including:

  • Signing up for an EndNote Account and Accessing EndNote
  • Adding Data - Manually
  • Direct Export from EBSCO Databases
  • Direct Export from Science Citation Index Expanded
  • Organizing References
  • Eliminating Duplicate References

Note: These instructions are for EndNote, a web-based product. It is also possible to purchase EndNote for installation on up to 3 computers. There are advantages of using EndNote through the Internet, because the information is available from any location and can be used on multiple devices.
