How to Use EndNote in Microsoft Word


In this video tutorial I’d like to show
you some of the ways that EndNote can interact with
Microsoft Word and help you in formatting your papers. I’m using Microsoft Word 2010 and EndNote X7. If you’re using an older version of Microsoft Word, EndNote will appear
slightly different, perhaps as a toolbar, or if you’re using a Mac, you’ll need to locate EndNote under “Tools.” In this case, EndNote is a tab at the top of the page. If I am writing a paper and I’d like to insert a citation from my EndNote library, I put the cursor at the location where I’d like the citation inserted and then I click on “Insert Citation.” I can search by author, by year, by title, or if I put in the letter “A,” I’ll get a list of all of the citations in my EndNote library. I select the one that I would
like to see included in my paper, and “Insert.” You can see that it appears here as a parenthetical citation, as well as EndNote has started my bibliography, here at the bottom of the page. If I wanted to change the
format the citation was in I could simply go up here and choose another format. If I wanted to manually make a change to the citation that I’ve inserted, I can click on “Edit & Manage Citation(s)” and go here to
add a page number, or to add something prior to the
citation within the parentheses, with a prefix,
or also within the parentheses after the citation, with a suffix, and click “OK.” If I wanted to add a footnote, it’s a very similar process. You would go to the spot where you wanted to add the footnote with your
cursor, go to “References,” “Insert Footnote,” go back to EndNote, and insert your citation, select the citation that you’d like to insert, hit “Insert,” and you can see that it appears as a footnote at the bottom of the page, as well as being added here, and to your bibliography which is developing at the bottom of the page.
