What is EndNote?

Why EndNote?

EndNote is a tool that allows you to:

  • Collect, organize, cite and share research.
  • Automate much of the work of organizing and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing.
  • Connect to online sources such as UMP Library catalogue and article databases. Further, it formats references in over 1,000 different bibliographic styles, and more.
  • There are two versions: a free simplified web version and a paid more full-featured desktop client.

With EndNote, you can:

  • Keep all your references and reference-related materials in a searchable personal library.
  • Synchronize your references between up to three of your personal computers, an online library, and your iPad or iPhone through EndNote Sync. (You must be the owner and user of all three computers.)
  • Set up a library sharing team and effortlessly collaborate with up to 400 co-authors and colleagues.
  • Cite your references in word processing documents to create formatted citations and bibliographies or independent reference lists.
