Main Content

EndNote is a software product that allows researchers to save and organize results of database searches or lists of bibliographic references. There are several similar products (ProCite, Reference Manager, RefWorks, WriteNote, the free Zotero, and Bookends) that provide the same functionality, but the university has a site license for EndNote only. A web-based product called EndNote Web is also available.

Downloading EndNote instructions

On campus users, which includes those connecting to the Internet via VPN , can download EndNote directly from the Software Distribution Office site.

Using EndNote

The basic unit is an EndNote library. You can create entries manually by typing bibliographic information (e.g., article title, author, journal name, volume, issue, pages, URL, etc.) for each new entry or copying and pasting from an email message or online citation. These entries can be searched and organized, and can be imported into word processing programs like Word as inline references or bibliographies. There, EndNote will assist with the proper formatting of those citations, using styles like APA or MLA, among hundreds of options.

Using databases with EndNote

There are three ways of getting citations into your EndNote library: manually entering the information, using EndNote to search databases and adding those search results to the library, and searching databases directly where you can export those search results to EndNote.

OpenURL settings

There are some changes you should make in your software settings to use the Virginia Tech Library's OpenURL server, which will allow you to search for full-text documents, search Addison and Summon, and link to ILLiad to request items through interlibrary loan.
