EndNote® x6 Software
What Is It?
EndNote helps you manage citations at three stages of the research process: collecting, organizing, and writing. At the collection stage, you can “export” citations into EndNote from most of our databases. At the organization stage, you decide how EndNote will best help you by creating “Groups”. At the writing stage, EndNote will integrate with word processing such as Microsoft Word (PC & Mac) and Pages (Mac) to help you not only insert citations, but also format them in the style required by your professor or publisher.
How Do I Get It?
The library pays for a site license for EndNote. This means that any current A&T student, and current faculty and staff, are able to use this software as long as they are a current student or university employee. Unfortunately, alumni and retired employees are not eligible to participate in this program.
To get a copy of EndNote, you will need to visit the Reference Desk on the first floor of the library when it is staffed during our hours of operation. Make sure to bring the following with you:
- Your Aggie One Card
- A 1Gb or larger USB thumb drive or a blank CD-R/RW
If you do not bring your Aggie One Card and/or do not bring something to copy the software onto, then we cannot give you a copy of the software.
Please note that when you graduate or otherwise leave the university, you must uninstall/delete the EndNote software from your computer (but you may keep the data files that EndNote generates).
How often is EndNote updated?
EndNote develops a new version annually. In recent years, the new release has been in July, but in 2012, the new version was not released until October. In between releases, you will need to run monthly an “Update EndNote” routine to check for any changes to the software (just like you commonly update your anti-virus software).
Where Can I Get Help with EndNote?
The library regularly offers classes (listed below). In addition, individuals can schedule a session with a reference librarian and faculty can request classroom instruction (especially recommended for a research methods class).
