EndNote is a program for managing bibliographic references that allows the user: - to create a database of references (and extended abstracts) that can be queried in many ways - to copy references directly into their favorite word processing program and to create a bibliography at the end of the paper - to format a paper that includes in-text citations and a bibliography to meet the standards of a particular journal or publication - to change the format (style) of the citations and bibliography of a given paper at any time and as often as needed. Commonly used styles are included with EndNote. The user can also download additional styles or design their own styles. References can be entered into the database manually one at a time, or copied automatically from already existing files or even from online sources. Copying is aided by the use of filters and connection specifications, many of which are included in the package. The user is also allowed to design new ones. While the program work best when used in conjunction with MS-Word or Corel-WordPerfect, it also works with several other file formats like Rich Text Format, FrameMaker MIF, ClarisWorks, and AMI Pro. Finally, EndNote can be used as a common interface to many online libraries and electronic databases. This paper presents a tutorial on EndNote for IS researchers and students. It assumes that the reader is familiar with the fundamental operations of the package and is interested in using the package at more than a rudimentary level. Notes for the beginner are included.
