NUS students and staff can now organize their reference citations through a bibliographic management software instead of typing them out manually. EndNote X2®, a product of Thomson-Reuters, is a software that:
1) Stores and organizes citations found from many sources
2) Inserts these citations into a Word document with the click of a button
3) Automatically formats the references according to a predefined citation style
How to Access EndNote X2
EndNote X2 is now available for download and install via NUS Software Catalogue. Before installing the Software Catalogue, users are advised to bring their laptops to Computer Centre for configuration. The Software Catalogue Client 1.2 can be installed at http://software.nus.edu.sg/catalogue/sc-setup.exe.
How to use EndNote X2
For a basic step=by-step guide, please see the NUS Libraries LION at http://libpweb1.nus.edu.sg/lion/e/endnoteguide.html. For the schedule of training workshops to be conducted by Thomson-Reuters, refer to the NUS Library Portal or NUS Calendar of Events from September 2008 onwards.
Switch from EndNote Web to EndNote X2
EndNote X2 is the desktop version of EndNote Web . EndNote Web users are encouraged to use X2 as it has better functionalities such as a faster processing speed since references are stored independent of the Web. Simply refer to the step-by-step guide in NUS Libraries LION (see above) for instructions on how to install EndNote X2.
To transfer references from EndNote Web to EndNoteX2, see http://libpweb1.nus.edu.sg/lion/e/endnoteimport.html#enwtox2
Current users who store references in EndNote Web should note that your account will expire if you do not login via NUS Libraries homepage once every 12 months.
Multiple installation of EndNote X2
The NUS Software catalogue only grants one installation per user. If you need to install EndNote X2 on your laptop in addition to your desktop station, please make a request to the softwared administrator (email@example.com) for the 2nd installation. Departmental IT administrators can also apply for multiple installations. You’ll need to suppy your NUSNET id, the number of installations required and the reason for multiple installations.
