Why use EndNote or Zotero?

Zotero & EndNote

Zotero and EndNote are two different kinds of citation management software.  You can use them to collect, organize, and reuse sources that you find in your research.  They are especially helpful for creating lists of references in the style you need and for organizing PDFs of articles or reports.  You can also share your sources on the web with the web-based versions of EndNote and Zotero.

Zotero is free to anyone, while EndNote is free for ASU students, faculty, and staff.  The Library buys it.

EndNote Online is available to anyone who downloads EndNote 21.  They're saying you'll get 3 years of service.

We now have EndNote 21.  It should be available though IT's Software Center now, but you can contact Stephanie or me for installation instructions also. or
