EndNote: Organize Citations

This guide provides information on how to set-up and use EndNote.

Library vs. Groups

Your EndNote Library is where you will store all of your citations. Within the Library, you can create groups to orgranize them.

A group set can contain any combination of groups and smart groups. Think of it as a heading for the group. A group is a collection of articles that are similar. You can create and name group sets and groups that meet your research needs.

You must create a group under a group set in order to add citations.
