What is EndNote?
EndNote is a computer program for managing citations and references. EndNote helps you organize bibliographic references to journal articles, books, book chapters, websites, or anything else you would cite in an academic paper. EndNote will insert a correctly formatted citation in the paper and create your bibliography in over a thousand standard style formats, e.g., APA, MLA, or Turabian.
How do I use EndNote?
The basic unit is an EndNote Library. You can create entries by manually typing the bibliographic information (e.g., article title, author, journal title, volume, issue, pages, etc.) into a form.
EndNote also allows you to download the bibliographic information from the library's online catalog and many library databases using a connection file.
Yet another way to get bibliographic information into EndNote is to download the information, and add it to EndNote using an import filter.
