Introduction to EndNote

  • Reference summaries that put critical information first
  • A redesigned online search experience
  • An updated PDF viewer with annotation tools
  • Improved deduplication features

In addition to covering the new features of EndNote 20, this class will give you the chance to practice using EndNote 20 to collect, organize, and maintain a 'library' of references, find and save full-text journal articles, and insert/format references in a MS Word document. The class will also cover searching and exporting citations from PubMed and Google Scholar.

We recommend downloading EndNote via Levy Library prior to this session, so that you may follow along with the instructor. Please use the link below to download the software, and be sure to follow the instructions exactly:
