EndNote X8 is a desktop program designed to help researchers through the process of writing a research paper, thesis or dissertation. This tool will help you organize and store bibliographic citations and pdfs you find using the Pearson Library databases or other research sources. In addition, it will automate the process of creating in-text citations and reference/bibliography lists in APA, MLA, Chicago or even customized formats.

EndNote X8 is only available to graduate students, CLU faculty and staff. EndNote Basic is available free to undergraduate students, and the general public.
