EndNote, Reference Manager
EndNote and Reference Manager are software that help you organize your research and easily create and manage footnotes and bibliographies, save a literature search, and 'paste' a bibliography in Word (cite-while-you-write).

PLEASE BE AWARE: Reference Manager will not be available anymore after December 31, 2016!
Switch to EndNote way before that date! Then there is plenty of time to convert Reference Manager-databases and manuscripts to EndNote. And to acquaint oneself with EndNote. The University Library supports this conversion in various ways by offering speaking hours, workshops, instructions and a helpdesk.
