What is EndNote & Why Should I Use It?
EndNote is citation management software that allows you to maintain a "personal library" of references and citations. It also allows you to import citation information from the Library's Catalog, online indexes and databases, and Google Scholar. If you use Microsoft Word, you can insert citations from your personal EndNote library directly into your documents and create bibliographies from those citations. Once you register, set up EndNote Web, and become familiar with how it works, it can save you a lot of time and headache citing resources when you're writing, and creating a bibliography of sources or references in you papers.
There are several different free online citation managers, but EndNote gives you the greatest variety of citation styles to choose.
