Making Bibliographies in MLA Format with EndNote

This Guide

  • This guide introduces you to EndNote, a free bibliographic citation management system. 
  • Though using EndNote is a bit more involved than using EasyBib or the Citation Machine, I can assure you that the extra effort is well worth it.
    • Testing of both EasyBib and the Citation Machine found that both tied researchers up with unnecessary distractions.
    • Both utilities for example, required users to sit though silly videos before allowing them to view their bibliographies. 
    • EndNote is a professional system that does not involve such nonsense.
  • Much time has been spent going through steps involved in using EndNote in tandem with the Academic Search database. 
  • Screen shots illustrate key steps.
  • If you find a step confusing, please contact me (see below). I would be happy to change the guide if things could be clearer!
