EndNote is a popular bibliographic management program you can use to organize references and create bibliographies. It is a personal
search tool, citation manager, and footnote, endnote, and bibliography formatter and works with databases for interdisciplinary
researches such as JSTOR and PAIS (Public Affairs Information Service). It gathers and stores citations
in a personal library of information. It also allows a seamless and structured transfer of bibliographic information from hundreds of
library catalogs worldwide such as, NUcat, WorldCat, and the Library of Congress online catalog.
The limitation of EndNote is that, currently, it does not work with Bluebook style. It does not work with databases
such as LexisNexis or Westlaw.
