Citation Management Tools: EndNote

EndNote Desktop and EndNote Online Classic

Endnote Bibliographic Management Software

EndNote is bibliographic citation management software that allows you to maintain a "personal library" of references and citations. It can also import citation information from the Library's Catalog, online indexes, and databases. If you use Microsoft Word, you can insert citations from your personal libraries directly into your documents and create bibliographies from those citations.

The Bowdoin community has access to two editions of EndNote, EndNote Basic and and EndNote desktop.   These editions can be setup to automatically transfer references between editions.
