*Advanced EndNoteThis special one-time session will be led by a trained instructor from EndNote.  This session will be guided by questions from the attendees.  If you have any questions about EndNote or have any problems getting EndNote to do what you need, this is a terrific opportunity.

**Endnote Web:  EndNote Web is a version of EndNote which is free to institutions like Auburn University that subscribe to the database Web of Science. EndNote Web works much like EndNote in principle but some of the specific details are different. EndNote Web can be used as a stand alone reference manager or with EndNote. Since EndNote is web-based, it can be accessed anywhere the web is available. References placed into EndNote Web can be transferred to EndNote and vice versa. This class is a hands-on introduction that covers the four ways to get references into EndNote Web: (1) Manually; (2) Directly from Web of Science; (3) Two-step import from a database; and (4) Directly from PubMed or the library catalog. Also covered is how to use My EndNote to write a paper.
