Endnote

Endnote

EndNote is software that allows you to keep track of your citations, organize them into folders, and create references and bibliographies in your papers. Unlike these web-based applications, EndNote is not free, and requires download and installation. You can download a 30-day trial version from the Endnote website, or buy it from the University of Illinois WebStore.

For more information about this resource, check out the Endnote LibGuide created by University of Illinois Library.
