Using EndNote to Keep Track of Your References

Need help keeping track of your references while writing an article, thesis, or paper? Try EndNote.

What is EndNote?
  • EndNote is a software program that allows you to store and manage your references and images.
  • EndNote will format your references in whatever style you choose -- APA, MLA, Chicago Manual of Style, etc.
  • EndNote works with word processing software to allow you to insert citations directly into your paper, building your bibliography as you insert your citations.
  • You can import references into EndNote from many online databases.
  • EndNote has a search interface that allows you to search library catalogs and selected bibliographic databases; it retrieves results from them directly into your EndNote library.
  • EndNote allows you to create your own searchable database of references, and any additional information you choose to add about each resource.
For more information about downloading and using EndNote, see the EndNote page listed in the "Tutorials & Tips" category on the UVM Libraries homepage. Laurie Kutner (laurie.kutner@uvm.edu / 656-2213) is the librarian contact for EndNote.
