Introduction to EndNote

Endnote, a leading citation management software program, manages all your citations and automatically converts them to the citation style you need. In this hands-on class, you will learn how to store, search and select references, then insert them automatically into your word processing document. 

The software can be downloaded for free by all those affiliated with Columbia University. Please download and install EndNote before class. If you experience difficulties contact or arrive 10 minutes early to class. There will also be desktop computers with EndNote installed available for practice during the session.
