How to make a citation using the Zuyd Library Catalogue?
What is citation? And why do we do it? This video explains.
EndNote is a reference management software package, a tool used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles. You can build a personal library containing descriptions/references of sources such as books, journal articles or web pages.
There are several ways to add a reference to a library: manually, by exporting from databases/search engines, importing, or copying from another EndNote library. Associated pdfs can be linked.
