The South Dakota Board of Regents has obtained a license for all students and employees of South Dakota State University for the EndNote Bibliographic Software.
EndNote is will help manage citations for research and writing and for bibliographies for classes. After the bibliographic information for references have been entered by downloading them from databases or manually entering it the “Cite-while-you-write” feature will automatically insert citations in the text and create a bibliography at the end. “Cite-while-you-write” works with Microsoft Word and Open Office. Even more amazing is that over 3700 styles including MLA, APA, CSE, Chicago, etc. and styles required for many specific journals are available for use in EndNote. Is it possible to change the citation style after writing the paper without laborious reformatting, just choose a new style and EndNote makes all the changes.
The software can be loaded onto your computer at work and home. Libraries of citations can be shared between computers or users by using flash drives or EndNote Web (an online limited version of EndNote accessible to anyone).
To load the software onto your computer, faculty should access InsideState and choose Academics and Briggs Library. On the Briggs Library InsideState page, the EndNote software is linked on the right side of the page. Students should check on MyStateOnline under My Academics in the Library box (if it is not listed here, e-mail Elizabeth Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org). Two files need to be saved onto your computer. Once the two files are saved on your computer, you just need to double click on the ENX3Inst.msi file and follow the directions.
