Format Endnote Bibliography Pages 09

If you have the EndNote plug-in, you can use EndNote to add a citation. Citations are added to an automatically updating bibliography at the end of the document.

  • Click where you want the citation to appear.

    To group the citation with another one, place the insertion point right in front of, or right after, the existing citation.

  • Click in the toolbar, then choose EndNote Citation.

    EndNote opens, and the Find window appears.

  • Enter text in the Find Citation field, then press Return to search your EndNote library for corresponding citations.

  • Select options using the controls in the Find EndNote Citations window to define how the citation appears in your document.

    If you want the citation to appear only in the bibliography and not in the document, select “In Bibliography only.”

  • Select a citation from the list, enter a page range (if needed), then click Insert.

    The citation is added to your document at the insertion point. If you didn’t select “In Bibliography only,” a bibliography field is added at the end of your document.

  • I've had the same problem, wrignj08.  How frustrating that there isn't some automatic function key that can be pressed to reformat the Bibliography with the new, corrected information.  Surely, it wouldn't be that difficult to include.

     

    The other problem I have found which is even more frustrating is that even when I have checked my reference list before writing my assignment so I won't have this problem with the bibliography, there are some references which still come up incorrectly even though I have corrected them.  For example, the journal article title in the bibliography comes up in capital letters even though I corrected it in my reference list to have small letters with leading letter capitals. eg. 'Language Teaching' corrected from 'LANGUAGE TEACHING'.  Is this to say that even errors which are imported using the style of that database or library site cannot be corrected?

     

    Sometimes I wonder if technology like this is made to make life easier or to drive us mad.
