EndNote is a bibliographic citation management tool to organize and store references. It allows users to search for, retrieve, and import citations directly from scholarly databases like PubMed, Medline, CINAHL, and ISI Web of Science, as well as library catalogs such as CLIO and WorldCAT and then organize and store them on your hard drive. It also can format your papers right from within your word processing program and converting your citations to your desired style format as you write.
Columbia University Libraries makes EndNote available to all current students, faculty, and staff, free of charge with a valid Columbia University UNI and password. There is no limit to the number of copies EndNote that you may download.
