EndNote 4.0


EndNote - Bibliographies Fast and Easy

The course is structured as an easy guide to both this useful software (EndNote) and its web version (EndNote Web) for the CEU student which provides valuable assistance to reference-list and bibliography managing in almost no time at all. Using Endnote with a CEU email account has the advantage of accessing a wider choice of online journal databases than with a private account.

Instead of spending hours typing bibliographies, or using index cards to organize their references, they do it the easy way--by using EndNote. EndNote integrates the following tasks into one program:

* Search bibliographic databases on the Internet
* Organize references in a database
* Create bibliographies automatically in your word processor

Please note: You may find that if you copy half of your online search results to a new folder and then opened that new folder, when you return to the main page the search results were no longer there.  To avoid this, you should always copy your online search results to a folder, even the Unfiled Folder, in order to retain them. If you leave the search results screen and you haven't copied the search results, the search results will be cleared and you will have to perform the search again.
