New guide for using EndNote x8 from Clarivate Analytics

EndNote Workshops

Basic EndNote x8:

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 and Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

4-5pm, Library Room 202

Join us for a basic overview of EndNote x8, a citation management tool available for free to Duquesne students and faculty. In this session, we’ll explore different ways to add references, set up Find Full Text to automatically import full text versions of your articles into EndNote, and create a sync account to access your citations anywhere. We’ll also show you how to insert citations directly into your papers as you write using the Microsoft World plug-in. You can either come with EndNote pre-installed to follow along on your own device or simply watch the demonstration and practice on your own at home. Registration is required for this workshop due to a limited number of seats.
