Featured Workshop: Basic EndNote

HSLS offers classes in a wide array of subjects—molecular biology, database searching, bibliographic management, and more! You can quickly view all Upcoming Classes and Events or sign up to receive the weekly Upcoming HSLS Classes and Workshops email.

This month’s featured workshop is Basic EndNote. The workshop will take place on Monday, May 17, from 10-11:30 a.m.

Basic EndNote is a popular workshop at HSLS, as EndNote is a well-known reference management tool that helps to streamline your entire research process. The EndNote software provides assistance in your research practice by allowing you to collect, save, and organize references all in one place for quick and easy access. Then once you’re ready to write, EndNote creates in-text citations and bibliographies for you through a Word plug-in, allowing you to easily switch to different citation styles as needed.

This workshop is ideal for anyone looking for an easier way to manage references and for those tired of creating their bibliographies by hand.

In this workshop, attendees learn the basics of EndNote and its core features, including importing references, attaching and annotating PDFs, and creating citations in Word. We also introduce attendees to EndNote Online, which allows you to access your references in any browser. Additionally, the class includes time at the end for participants to practice what they’ve learned.

While the Basic EndNote class is suitable for anyone, no matter what software version they have or device they use, HSLS also provides separate iterations of the Basic class for users with Macs and for users of EndNote 20, the latest version. Depending on your affiliation, you can get EndNote through Pitt if you don’t already have access. And once you’re comfortable with the basics, there are more advanced classes as well, including Advanced EndNote and EndNote for Remote Teams, which covers sharing.

If you’re unable to attend, this scheduled session can also be repeated on request. Request a customized session of Basic EndNote and other HSLS workshops for your course, group, or department.
