EndNote is a bibliographic management tool that allows users to create and organize a library of citations and abstracts and then insert them into a Microsoft Word document.
The Lamar Soutter Library is pleased to provide the University of Massachusetts Medical School with an institutional site license for EndNote software for both Windows and Mac users.
The latest version of the software (as of February 2017) is EndNote X8.
The license covers UMMS students, faculty and staff, and staff of our clinical partner, UMass Memorial Health Care. The software can be installed on UMMS or UMMHC computers and up to two personal computers per user.
