In an effort to prioritize the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors, Parks Library is closed for the foreseeable future. During this time, in-person library services will not be available. However, you can still contact your subject librarian for support and access online resources available through the Library.
For up-to-date information about services affected by the shutdown, please visit the library's COVID-19 Response webpage.
EndNote and EndNote Web* are robust bibliographic management software tools designed to help you collect, organize, and use necessary citations for your writing and research projects. Both of these tools can be integrated with Microsoft Word so that while you are writing within Word, you can easily connect to EndNote or EndNote Web / Basic and retrieve necessary citations you've collected and stored there.
* Note: EndNote Web is being rebranded as EndNote Basic. However, the ISU Library still uses the name EndNote Web because that's the name you'll see in most indexes when you're collecting your references. In addition, some Thomson Reuters documentation still uses the name EndNote Web as well.
Anyone can set up an EndNote Basic account. However, when you sign up using your ISU email address, you automatically get more features added to your EndNote Basic account because of the Library's subscription to Thomson Reuters databases. This enhanced version of EndNote Basic is what we call EndNote Web. You do not need to purchase EndNote desktop software in order to use EndNote Web.
