What is EndNote Basic?

EndNote Basic (previously called EndNote Web) is an online citation management tool from Thomson Reuters that you can use to:

     collect and organize references (for example, journal citations)

     share references with others (a nice feature if you’re doing group projects)

     format a bibliography or works cited page (cite those references in APA or AMA, etc. format).


“Free” access comes with the Library’s subscription to Thomson Reuters Social Science Citation Index.


It’s not as powerful as the EndNote program you would buy and install on your computer, but is a great starter tool.

IMPORTANT:  When you sign up for an account, you MUST be either on campus or connected to the Library VPN for EndNote Basic to recognize that you are affiliated with UCCS.  Once you have an account, you can log on to EndNote Bsaic from any computer.  However, if working off campus, you must be connected to the VPN to access the Library’s databases. 


* You must connect to your account either on campus or on the Library VPN at least once a year to keep your account.*
