EndNote is software that helps you manage your research and format your citations. EndNote is licensed for use by current Northeastern faculty, staff, and students. It comes with a plug-in for Word, called Cite While You Write.
There are two ways to use Endnote:
1) You can install Endnote software* and store your citations and PDFs on your own personal computer, or
2) You can use a web-based version and store (and share) your research items in the cloud.
Most people choose the first option because it has greater functionality. The second option can be a backup of your Endnote library that is synced with the desktop version.
*As a Northeastern affiliate, you do not need to purchase it if you follow these download instructions. As long as you are a current student, faculty or staff, there is no need to download a trial version or one that requires a purchase. (Ignore the link that says "Free and Discounted Software" and instead go straight to "Software Downloads.")
