Bibliographic Management Tools: EndNote

Please migrate all content out of RefWorks prior to September 1st, 2017.

Why should you choose EndNote as your Bibliographic Management tool?

Fordham IT subscribes to the reference manager EndNote and provides it to the Fordham community for free. EndNote is embedded in the Microsoft office software provided by the University and can be downloaded for use with your own software.  Fordham IT is prepared to provide technical assistance with EndNote issues.  

EndNote has both a WEB and DESKTOP component, allowing you to add resources to EndNote from any device and to sync content uploaded to the web to your desktop libraries. EndNote Desktop stores content locally and thus can be used without an internet connection.

EndNote libraries can be shared with other EndNote users.  EndNote allows researchers to upload documents, add annotations, import database subject headings and keywords, and tag references with your own unique terms.

EndNote Web has two plug-ins: one for capturing references from your browser window and one that links your online library to Microsoft Word.  The EndNote Capture Reference plug-in will automatically extract and import basic citation information from pdf and/or web pages into your EndNote library. The EndNote Cite While You Write plug-in will insert references, format citations, and create bibliographies automatically while you write your papers in Word.

Please note which version of EndNote you are using: EndNote X7 or EndNote X8.

How to download and access DESKTOP EndNote

EndNote is available for downloading at Fordham's Information Technology website: https://www.fordham.edu/info/25687/software_resources

EndNote is also embedded in the Microsoft Office software available on all University computers.  Please note which version of EndNote you are using: EndNote X7 or EndNote X8.

How to add the EndNote Web plug-ins to your Browser
