Both these tools can be integrated with Microsoft Word, so while you are writing within Word, you can easily connect to EndNote or EndNote online/Basic and retrieve necessary citations you've collected and stored there.

An important note about EndNote online versus EndNote Basic.
EndNote online is a fuller, more robust version of the EndNote cloud application. All campus members have automatic access to EndNote online because of the Library's subscription to Thomson Reuters products. Any individual can create an EndNote Basic account. To have access to EndNote online individuals must have a subscription to Thomson Reuters products (Web of Science, Web of Knowledge) through their institution.
