EndNote is a web-based citation management tool which provides users with online storage for their references. It also offers the ability to insert citations and format bibliographies instantly in a word processor.
EndNote accounts are available free to Meredith faculty, students, and staff.
To use EndNote, you must first create an account from on campus. After your account has been established, you may access your account from any computer. Visit the EndNote website and click on "Create an Account."
Once you have established an account, you will use http://www.myendnoteweb.com to access and build your library of citations.
ISI Web of Knowledge and EBSCOhost databases support a direct import to EndNote Web. Other databases require saving to a file before importing.
See the Exporting Citations from Databases to EndNote tab for detailed instructions on commonly used research resources.
You can use EndNote to automatically generate bibliographies of selected sources in the citation style of your choosing.
You may choose to organize your citations into one or more groups. Groups can keep your citations organized according to topic, material type, pro/con, empirical/theoretical, assignment, or some other dimension.
You may also want to share a group of citations with a professor or research partner. Make sure the other person has an EndNote account.
To cite sources from your EndNote library while writing your paper, you must first download the "Cite While You Write" plug-in from EndNote. Go to the Format tab and click Cite While You Write Plug-In, then choose the Windows or Mac version. After the installation, you will see a new EndNote menu tab appear in Microsoft Word.
