Thanks to Yuyun Wirawati, Li Ka Shing Library, Singapore Management Library, for allowing me to adapt her guide.

What is it?


EndNote Web is a service designed to help researchers through the process of writing a research paper. It is used to collect and organize references, as well as cite them while writing a paper.  It can also be a powerful collaboration tool.

What will it do for me?


• Quickly and easily collect reference information from a wide variety of online databases via direct export, online search, or importing as text files.
• Store up to 10,000 references in your own password-protected library, accessible anywhere that you have internet access.
• Share references with other EndNote Web users to simplify collaboration.
• Cite While You Write in Microsoft Word to insert references and format citations and bibliographies instantly.
