EndNote Web is a web-based personal citation database and bibliography creator that allows you to import, store, and share your research citations and automatically formats your bibliographies into whatever style you need (APA, MLA, Chicago, and many more).
- A web-based personal citation database that allows you to store, edit, and manage up to 10,000 citations as well as create bibliographies.
- Citations from many databases may be imported into your online account from saved files of citations, directly from a limited number of databases, or manually.
- Works with Microsoft Word (requires free Cite While You Write plug-in) to allow you to automatically create in-text citations and bibliographies in a choice of over 3,200 publishing styles.
- Allows online sharing of EndNote Web folders of citations for collaborative projects.
- Similar to EndNote, the desktop software. In addition to the web version being free to UW users vs a cost for EndNote, there are other differences.
