EndNote Web

What is covered in this section

It's helpful to have a general idea of how EndNote Web works. In this section, you will learn about:

  • Overview of the EndNote Web Process

  • Creating a user account

  • Cite While You Write (CWUW) plug-in feature

Overview of the EndNote Web process

You will need to build your EndNote Web library (EndNote Web calls it 'My References) and you can store up to 10,000 citations.

The general idea in using EndNote Web is to:  

  • Find articles in the library databases

  • Export these article citations from the databases

  • Import these article citations into EndNote Web

  • Share citations with colleagues and groups

  • Insert citations for in-text citations (you must first download Cite While Your Write plug-in for MSWord)

  • Create a bibliography, in a variety of citation styles, to copy and paste into your MS Word document

Creating a user account

To get started using EndNote Web, you must first create a user account. Please note that this account is not maintained by AUS.

  • Log into

  • Under Quick Links, go to 'Databases by Title'

  • Select the EndNote Web link

  • Click the link: 'Sign Up to register and create an account.'

You're now ready to use EndNote Web!

Go to the Adding References tab to learn about exporting article citations into EndNote Web.

Cite While You Write plug-in

In order to insert citations from your EndNote Web library, you will need to download the plug-in 'Cite While You Write'.
