About EndNote: EndNote is a bibliographic management software program installed on your computer. It allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.
EndNote can be purchased at a discount through the UIC Webstore by UIC faculty, staff, and students.
EndNote Quick Start Notes
There are 3 ways to import references into your EndNote account.
The EndNote search will not work with UIC’s subscription databases. [Only PubMed, a freely available resource, is accessible through EndNote.]
If you need further assistance with importing/ exporting citations into EndNote, please contact Ask a Librarian. The UIC Library can help with basic importing/ exporting questions, but we are not able to assist with technical issues you may have with EndNote.
For technical issues, please contact EndNote's Technical Support.
