Why Manage References?

Using citation management tools like EndNote can make it easier to keep track of the resources you want to use for an assignment or project. EndNote makes it easy to save sources in a central location throughout a project -- and to import and export sources.

There are many ways to save citations for sources, such as: handwritten index cards, printing or e-mailing references from electronic sources, bookmarking web pages, copying citations into a Word or Excel file, or saving the PDF copy of all your articles on your desktop.


However, citation management programs can be much more efficient. Programs like EndNote save everything in one location and provide a place where you can organize your sources and properly cite them using a variety of citation styles.

Download EndNote

Our Endnote site license requires that you uninstall Endnote from all devices upon leaving UCF or when the library no longer has a subscription to EndNote.
