Ask Us!

The person you're chatting with in this box may not be the person you see on this page, but we can still help you!


Welcome to the Libraries' citation style guides. These guides contain examples of the items you cite most often: books, articles and websites. If you're looking for something that doesn't fit into these categories, you can borrow one of the style guides at the Reference or Circulation desks in Jackson Library. Or, you can always ask a librarian for help using the Ask Us box on the left side of the page.


To see our examples, choose the tab for the style you need at the top of the page.

What is EndNote?

EndNote allows you to import citations from library databases or from Google Scholar. You can then use EndNote with MS Word to automatically create in-text citations and bibliographies in hundreds of different citation styles.  There is currently an IPad version of EndNote - UNCG librarians have not yet used this version.

UNCG provides current students and employees with several versions of EndNote:

1. EndNote X6 is an application installed on library computers and is available on the campus network through Run Advertised Programs.

EndNote X7 is available through Run Advertised Programs and in ITS computer labs

NOTE: Currently the computers in ITS labs have an EndNote tab in Word allow you to use Cite While You Write and those in the library CITI lab do NOT have an EndNote tab inside MS Word.


  • You can import references from most library databases, from the library catalog, and from Google Scholar
  • Your references are stored in an "Endnote Library" file (.enl) that resides on your computer
  • You can attach PDF files to references in your EndNote library
  • You can organize your references into folders within your EndNote library
  • You can customize your EndNote library to display the full names of journals in references imported from PubMed
  • You can use the EndNote tab in MS Word to insert citations from your library, to auto-generate a bibliography, and to switch between citation styles - NOT CURRENTLY ON THE LIBRARY COMPUTERS but should be available in campus labs
  • There is a limit to the number of people allowed to use this application, so you may occasionally be shut out temporarily

2. EndNote Online lets you upload, organize, share, and format citations. You have to create your own EndNote Web account.

NOTE:  The University Libraries currently have a one year subscription to EndNote Online and we anticipate that our current budget  will not allow us to continue this subscription beyond June 2015.  Our current expectation is that EndNote desktop offered in labs and on other university owned computers will continue.  Citations stored in EndNote Online will no longer be available after June 30, 2015.   We are developing alternatives for downloading any citations that you have stored in EndNote Online.  Contact Mary Krautter at with questions
