USING EndNote if you have not used it before.

Prof. Taylor will be available to show you on a one-on-one

basis the program EndNote to search for

chemical literature.

Millions of researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians

use EndNote (patent pending) to search online bibliographic

databases, organize their references and images, and create

bibliographies and figure lists instantly. Instead of spending

hours typing bibliographies, or using index cards to organize

their references, they do it the easy way—by using

EndNote! EndNote for Windows and Macintosh is a valuable

all-in-one tool that integrates the following tasks into

one program:

Search bibliographic databases on the Internet

Organize references and images in a database

Construct your paper with built-in manuscript templates

Watch the bibliography and figure list appear as you write!
