EndNote Online is the online component of the EndNote reference management and bibliography-creation software. It allows you to collect, organise and store references online, sync with your EndNote Desktop library, share references with other users, and create citations and bibliographies in Microsoft Word.
There are two versions of EndNote: EndNote Desktop and EndNote Online. The EndNote Desktop software stores the program and your library on your local computer, whereras EndNote Online accounts store your citation collection on web based servers so you can log onto the web and access your account from anywhere. EndNote Online doesn't replace EndNote Desktop. It is a tool for those who wish to collaborate, or those who don't have access to an EndNote Desktop account.
Before you begin using the EndNote program you need to know which referencing style your school uses and become familiar with that style. While EndNote will display references in your selected referencing style (e.g. APA, Chicago, Vancouver etc.) you need to be able to recognise any mistakes or inconsistencies in your references. For more information about referencing please see:
