Managing your references

 EndNote logoWith the computer program EndNote, you can create your own personal library of references to articles, books, and other materials you have collected during your research. You can then select and insert references from your library into a word document by means of a toolbar which the EndNote program adds to your Word program. EndNote will create an in-text citation for the reference and also create the bibliography entry at the end of the document. These entries can be configured to conform to any bibliographic style you choose.
