Software Suggestions to Replace EndNote

Recently, Albion College removed EndNote from the software list, which has left a few wondering: what do I do with my bibliography info?

The answer is actually quite simple. There are numerous free programs that work very similarly to EndNote. Albion College Information Technology recommends taking a look at Zotero or Mendeley. Both of these programs integrate with Microsoft Office. Zotero also integrates with WordPress, which several Albion College professors utilize for classroom blogs.

While those wishing to use the software will have to download these two programs, they can be found and accessed easily. Check below for download links, as well as links to guides and tutorials for exporting EndNote materials into the new program.
