Introduction to EndNote Workshop at Northern Virigina Center
(Greater Washington DC Metro Area)
EndNote is a licensed software package from Thomson Reuters that is available at no charge to Virginia Tech faculty, staff, and students. It is an online search tool, reference, and full text organizer with a collaborative web tool and a bibliography maker useing Cite While You Write formatting.
The purpose of this introductory session is to provide a quick, hands-on introduction in using the basic elements of End Note. Activities include learning how to create a library; add records to a library manually; export records from online databases (including Google Scholar, EBSCOhost, Web of Science) into a library; add PDF articles to a library; and create bibliographies and in-text citations from records in a library.
EndNote software can be downloaded from the university's network software site. If downloading from home, you will need to access the site through a VPN connection. You can download from the Northern Virginia Center if you are registered for VT wireless access. For assistance, contact the Resource Center on the first floor of the Northern Virginia Center (703-538-8340 or email email@example.com). You can also load the software onto your laptop from discs (Window and Mac) that the instructor will bring to the session.
