Online Resources for Creating Bibliographies

RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases and other various sources. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.

To use this resource, you need to create an account using a computer on campus. Please contact jennifer.leffler@unco.edu if you need to create an account from off campus.

EndNote Web
A web-based version of EndNote bibliographic management software. You must connect from a computer on the UNC network when you initially set up your free account; after that you may log in from any computer. (EndNote Web 2.0 User Guide)

Login using a free personal ID is required. From off campus, a one-time UNC login - to authenticate you as a UNC Libraries patron - is needed in order to initially create your personal ID. UNC login information is available from the online username and password list (click on User Names and Passwords, then enter your name and UNC ID number) or from Michener Library personnel at (970) 351-2671.
