You need to sign up for an individual account to keep your own references. The library provides this service as part of our online subscriptions, but your account is your own to manage.
If you don't want to save your citations, just format them, see the Alternatives to EndNote Web tab.
Use this checklist to set up your own computer to make best use of EndNote Web.
In order to take full advantage of EndNote Web, you should, if possible, install the toolbars and plugins available. There are 2:
If you use Internet Explorer as your primary browser, all you need to do is install the Cite While You Write plugin for MS Word. If you use Firefox, you'll need the extension.
The downloads are available at the bottom of the page once you have logged into EndNote Web, or from the Help pages.
If you do not use MS Word for word processing, you can still use EndNote Web for formatting. You can either format the bibliography in EndNote Web as a separate document (and paste it into your paper) or you can use the "temporary citation layout" and upload your paper into EndNote Web for automatic formatting. Please see the instructions for the temporary citation layout.
If you do not use either Internet Explorer or Firefox as your web browser, you can still import citations into EndNote Web. The EBSCO databases will still export citations directly to EndNote Web. For other databases, you may need to download the text file with your citations in EndNote or RIS format, and import them into EndNote Web.
Thomson/Reuters, the providers of EndNote Web, require that all users of campus subscriptions log on from "authorized" computers every 12 months. An "authorized" computer is one on campus or one accessing Web of Science through the database login. Since alumni do not have off campus database access (see alumni/guest library privileges), the only alumni access to EndNote Web via an authorized computer is on campus.
