  • Create bibliographies in thousands of styles
  • Integrate of bibliographies into Word and other word processing softwares.
  • Share references with research partners using EndNote Web

There are two versions of EndNote - a standalone desktop version and EndNote Online (also called EndNote Basic), a cloud based version. It is recommended that you install the desktop application, create an EndNote Online account and sync the two. EndNote Online serves as a cloud based backup to your desktop application.  

Although VPN is not required to use EndNote, it is recommended. Using Pulse Secure VPN will help when fetching PDFs from the library's electronic journal collection.
