EndNote: Bibliographies and Citations

How to use EndNote (for PC and Mac) to organize citations, format papers and create references and bibliographies.

Using Cite While You Write

EndNote's Cite While You Write (CWYW) feature inserts EndNote commands into Micosoft Word. Use CWYW tools to create footnotes, in-text references and bibliographies from your EndNote Library. Watch an online tutorial on CWYW here .


What Are Output Styles?

Output styles determine how your references will look when exported to footnotes, bibliographies or lists. Common output styles are MLA, Chicago Manual of Style, APA, etc. EndNote has templates for these and many other styles required by scholarly journals. You can also customize existing styles, or create your own. The EndNote User's Guide (pdf) included with your EndNote installation, provides complete instructions on how to do this.

For examples of references in MLA, APA or Chicago, see the NYU Libraries Citation Style Guide
