What is EndNote

  • EndNote is a tool to create a database of citations, called a library. 
  • Citations can be added to EndNote manually, by importing citations from a database, or by uploading PDF files. 
  • EndNote interacts with word processing software and uses an Output Style to generate in-text citations and format a bibliography.
  • EndNote comes preloaded with the 100 most popular Output Styles (MLA, APA, Chicago, JAMA). More are available on the EndNote website or you can create your own custom style.
