Using Cite While You Write


What is EndNote?

EndNote is a bibliographic citation manager. It helps you keep track of citation information for the resources you plan to use in your papers and projects. It also creates bibliographies using the citations you’ve collected in APA, MLA, Chicago, or several other citation style formats.

EndNote Web and its Cite While You Write plug-in allow you to easily create in-text citations within Microsoft Word. At the same time, they compile a reference page for you in Word using only the sources that you’ve cited in your paper.   

EndNote Desktop is also available as a feature on campus computers. We currently use EndNote x6. The desktop version allows you to attach files (like article PDFs) and store up to 25,000 references (versus the 10,000 allowed in EndNote Web). Access the desktop version by going to All Programs=>Academic Software=>Library=>EndNote.
