Are you tired of using some free bibliographic software program that tricks you into thinking it’s helping you when really it’s just hurting your grade? Are your professors telling you that you had better not ever turn in such a sorry bibliography ever again? Rest assured, EndNote is here, and it’s here to help and save you a whole lot of time.
What is EndNote? It is a reference management software package, used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles. EndNote requires a subscription to use it. Guess what? We have a subscription to EndNote.
How do you use it? First, you have to find it on the Library website by clicking the link for Complete List of Resources and then clicking the D-E category. Or click here.
Next, you will need to create your EndNote account. It’s very easy. Just use your Roanoke College email account.
Once you have your account, there are a few things you can do with EndNote. There are links to how to get started, and how to create a reference manually. You can also use EndNote through the Library’s homepage search box, also known as EDS. Here are the instructions on using EndNote with EDS:

If you need assistance with EndNote, or any other Library resource, please find a Librarian and ask for help.
Come by Olin Theater tonight to hear New York Times-bestseller (and Roanoke-based) author Beth Macy talk about her book “Factory Man: How one furniture maker battled offshoring, stayed local.” HBO plans on making a mini-series based on the book and Tom Hanks will be producing it. Tickets are required for this event, and they are free, but you will have to get them here: http://webapps.roanoke.edu/webcal/ticketlist.cfm.
There will be a book signing after her talk, so bring your copy or buy one from the bookstore.
See you tonight!
