EndNote Version 6.0 Bibliographical Software Available To Students, Faculty and Staff Through University Site License

November 15, 2002 - Columbia University Libraries signed a site license for EndNote with ISI ResearchSoft. Beginning with the 2002 fall semester, all current students, faculty, and staff at Columbia, Barnard, Teachers College, and Union Theological Seminary will be able to obtain a personal copy of EndNote bibliographic software free of charge. The software should be of great assistance to all who make use of the Libraries' extensive collection of information resources in their study, research, and teaching.


Because of continuing demand, the Libraries has added additional EndNote classes to its schedule of instructional offerings. They will take place in Butler 306:

Tuesday, November 26, 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. FULL
Wednesday, December 4, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. FULL
NEW! Wednesday, December 11, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
NEW! Thursday, December 12, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Register online or by calling 854-2241 on the day of the session to see if places are still available.

Current students, faculty and staff can download their free copy of EndNote software and learn more about the Libraries' EndNote program.

EndNote is installed on workstations in AcIS labs and electronic classrooms, the Electronic Text Service (Butler 305), and computer classrooms and labs at the Health Sciences Library, Barnard, Teachers College, and the School of Social Work. Three versions of the software are available for download: EndNote 6.0 for Windows, EndNote 6.0 for Macintosh (requires OSX), and EndNote 5.0 for Macintosh (earlier operating systems).

The most widely-used software of its kind on the market, EndNote allows users to search, retrieve and store citations from bibliographic databases such as ABI Inform, the Web of Science, Anthropological Literature, the MLA Bibliography, or library catalogs. EndNote also enables researchers to track their use of resources for a particular project or to maintain an ongoing list of relevant literature via searchable and customizable personal databases. Endnote can generate bibliographies, reading lists, and footnotes in a wide variety of styles, and because it links directly to word-processing programs such as Microsoft Word and Wordperfect, it enables users to add and format citations as they write.
