[Micronet] Campus License for Endnote?

John McChesney-Young
One of our professors just wrote to say her PC crashed and she wants
to get Endnote for her Mac. She thought we had a campus license and
asked me to look into it. I found an old blog post showing it *used*
to be really cheap through Software Central:

http://blogs.lib.berkeley.edu/sel.php/save-money-by-buying-endnote-now

but they no longer list it. Although a link at that post goes to a
slightly cheaper source than direct
(http://www.journeyed.com/product/search?srch_cat=&qk_srch=endnote), I
thought before sending her there I'd check to see whether there really
is a campus agreement and I'm not finding it.

(I've been trying to get her to switch to Zotero for the last two
years without success, so that's not an option.)

Thanks!

John

For the most part we have switched to a free software called Zotero which everyone seems to like better than EndNote.

Mendeley is a third option (my preference) and we do have a campus license for RefWorks (web-based).  One of our libraries maintains a product comparison site - http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/PUBL/endnote.html.

Good luck,

Erik

In reply to this post by John McChesney-Young
John,

Happy new year!

When I last investigated this, I learned from Ashley McCullough that the Cal Student Store has Endnote licenses, but that was at least 6 months to a year ago so I'm not sure if that's still the case. I've cc:ed her here so that she can confirm or deny it.

I can relate to your dilemma that some people are wedded to a product like Endnote and won't consider other options for one reason or another even if they are free like Zotero. I would like to hear from Ashley again to see if Endnote is still available because I have faculty who want to still use it as well.

Thanks for your inquiry. 

 Beth
