EndNote: Introduction

Bibliography and database management tool for managing citations,references, PDFs, and publishing papers.


Both EndNote Online and EndNote Software are citation management software programs. EndNote Online is cloud based and requires an Internet connection for use. EndNote Software is a program that is downloaded and runs on your computer.

These programs both do the same thing: they help you collect citations from different databases into one library, and format citations and bibliographies for papers.
