This video explains what you need to follow along, such as the version of EndNote used in the course and installation requirements.
- [Narrator] Well here's what you need to follow along with me in this course. Firstly, I'll be working with EndNote X8 on a Windows PC. There is a Mac version of EndNote, which is very similar, and we'll be showing you the Mac keyboard shortcuts along the way, but if you want to see exactly what I see on my screen, you'll need to be working with the Windows version of EndNote. And if you don't have it installed and maybe you're not ready to buy it, not to worry. You can access a free 30 day trial at endnote.com.
You'll also need an internet connection because we will be accessing online databases, working with online versions of EndNote, and using the internet to share with others and sync up our own library online. And while you won't need to have any previous experience with EndNote to follow along with me, some experience with Windows and even Microsoft Word will make things easier for you as we move through the chapters and movies in this course. So with so much to cover, let's get started with EndNote.
