My EndnoteWeb

You must be on campus to sign up for an account, but once you register, you can access it from anywhere! Uploading files from other databases can be done, but is a little tricky so be patient. To access EndNote Web from the Ursuline College Library’s Indexes/Databases use one of these three indexes:

Scholar's Aid 4 Lite

Scholar's Aid 4 Lite is a freeware version of Scholar's Aid. It only requires a simple registration that is free. It must be downloaded onto each computer you plan to use; therefore, you could not use it at Ursuline College Library.


Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It lives right where you do your work — in the web browser itself. You do not "login" to access your data from anywhere. You must transport your Zotero library from one machine to another to access your data from any computer. See Frequently asked questions for instructions and more information about Zotero.
