UC Davis buys campuswide license for EndNote

UC Davis has signed a three-year agreement to allow its students, instructors and employees to use EndNote, a popular bibliographic software.

The Software License Coordination unit of UC Davis Information and Educational Technology announced the agreement for a campuswide site license with Thompson ResearchSoft.

The license allows all current UC Davis students, faculty and staffers to install and use EndNote on computers at work and at home. Updates and support are included for the duration of the contract.

"We expect to have the software available as a free download from the software Web site by Sept. 1," the unit announced today. "It will also be available on the Internet tools 2006-2007 CD that will be released for the fall quarter."

The unit said it will send out a follow-up announcement when EndNote is available on the site.

EndNote is used to search databases, and to organize and format references for academic and scholarly papers. It runs on Windows and Mac OS, and is compatible with recent versions of Microsoft Word.

Thomson ResearchSoft is part of The Thomson Corp., a large Canadian information services company based in Stamford, Conn. For more on EndNote, go to www.endnote.com/eninfo.asp.
