EndNote is a licensed software package from Thomson Reuters that is available at no charge to Virginia Tech faculty, staff, and students. EndNote is defined in its promotional materials as an online search tool, a reference and full text organizer with a collaborative Web tool, and a bibliography maker using Cite While You Write formatting. EndNote has a web-based product called EndNote Web that can be used in place of the software product or as a supplement to it.
The purpose of this session is to provide a quick, hands-on introduction in using the basic elements of EndNote, including how to create in-text citations and a bibliography using Microsoft Word.
Room 3310 Torgersen has desktop computers running the Macintosh operating system with the latest version of EndNote software loaded. Feel free to bring your laptop instead. One of the activities will be how to download the software.
