EndNote is a database program for managing bibliographic citations. 

  • It automates much of the work of organizing and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing.
  • EndNote can connect to online sources such as library catalogs and article databases, output results in over 1,000 different bibliographic styles, and more.
  • There are two versions of Endnote -- a standalone desktop program, and EndNote Onlline/Web, a cloud-based version. If you want to use both, they can be synced so that you have the same references in both places.

For help with EndNote Online/Web see our EndNote Online tab.

This page is a quick reference to some of  EndNote's frequently used features.
