EndNote Workshop for Graduate Students

On May 3rd, DePaul University Library staff Ana Lucic, Digital Scholarship Librarian, and Christopher Parker, Science Librarian, will hold an EndNote workshop. Interested graduate students are invited to attend. EndNote is the electronic reference manager available to all students, staff, and faculty at DePaul.Endnote Logo

EndNote is a product of Clarivate Analytics, formerly called Thomson Reuters Intellectual Property & Science[1]. While EndNote does not track and measure the citation impact as Science Citation Index (SCI) does (another Clarivate Analytics product), it helps manage, format and store the references that we use when working on a project or writing a paper. EndNote integrates well with the Web of Science Core Collection database, another Clarivate Analytics product, and with other DePaul databases as well as applications, such as the Microsoft Word application, through an add-in that automatically integrates with the Word program during the reference manager installation.

An additional advantage of this application is its web version, EndNote Web, which offers a convenient way of managing and keeping all of your references in one place when you are traveling or do not have access to your laptop or desktop computer. With only access to a browser (for example when working on a library desktop computer), references of interest can be uploaded to the web version of EndNote and later on synced with the desktop version on your computer.

Apart from formatting bibliographies, EndNote has the capability to integrate with DePaul University Library databases, find full-text of the articles, and bring them to the reference manager with one click. This functionality allows you to keep both the documents and the information about documents in one place. Truth to be told, EndNote is particularly convenient for storing references to scholarly articles and books but not as convenient for storing archival material such as letters, photos, diaries, and photos that humanities scholars frequently use and refer to in their work[2]. However, the metadata about these items can still be stored and managed through EndNote.
