EndNote can help students with:

  • Organizing their references in a database
  • Importing references from search engines
  • Creating in-text citations in their documents (papers, theses, dissertations, etc.)
  • Creating bibliographies for their documents (papers, theses, dissertations, etc.)

EndNote is available for Macintosh and Windows computers. EndNote integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Word, but can also be used to organize references and export them into formats that LaTeX can use.

Downloading EndNote

Michigan Tech faculty, staff, and students may install EndNote on a work or personal computer for University work. EndNote is available for both Windows and Mac OS X and can be accessed though IT's Software Distribution Center. Software downloads are available to students during the semesters/tracks where they are actively enrolled. There may be periods between semesters where software downloads are unavailable. For assistance installing EndNote on a campus computer, contact IT. Students can also visit EndNote technical support for information on common installation issues.

Customizing EndNote

Output styles are files that tell EndNote how to format the in-text citations and bibliography. Import filters allow users to import data from search engines (such as MedLine, ISI Web of Knowledge, or other databases) into their own database. Contact the Graduate School with questions about the Michigan Tech filters and styles.
