Welcome to the EndNote Library Guide

EndNote logoThe Harriet F. Ginsburg Health Sciences Library presents the following guide on how to download, install, set-up, and use the EndNote Citation software provided by UCF IT for students, faculty, and staff.

  • Automatically format bibliographies and citations in JAMA, APA, Chicago, MLA, or 1000+ other styles
  • Add citations to documents and automatically create the reference or bibliography section
  • Store references in one place that is accessible across multiple devices
  • Collaborate on, and share reference libraries with other EndNote users
