EndNote (Desktop): Using EndNote and Word

Use this guide to get started using the desktop version of EndNote.

Using EndNote with MS Word

EndNote works with Microsoft Word to create your in-text citations and build your bibliography.  This is called "Cite While You Write" or CWYW and it helps take a lot of the work out of citing your references while you're composing your paper. This section will go over the following CWYW topics:

  • Two methods for adding citations to your paper
  • Editing the in-text citations
  • Formatting the bibliography

Use the links to the left or the drop-down menu at the top of the EndNote and Word tab.  Each section will have video tutorials, simple step by step instructions and a few more details about the topic.
