About EndNote

EndNote is a citation manager. Citation managers are used to organize citations used in research, and then to develop bibliographies. You can access EndNote via the web, have it loaded on your WRNMMC computer, or request the information to load it on your personal computer. It's helpful to understand how DoD cyber security impacts EndNote use.

  • This FAQ tells you how to get EndNote.
  • EndNote Web will not sync with EndNote on your computer. This FAQ provides a workaround.
  • Each version of EndNote needs to be on DHA’s Approved Products List (APL) before it can be loaded on WRNMMC computers. The review process can take up to 9 months, so it is fairly typical that the approved version of EndNote is one version behind the current release. You can get the most current release on your personal computer.
  • EndNote has a "Cite While You Write" function, which lets you embed citations in your Word document while writing. It is not approved by cyber security, and will not work on WRNMMC computers. It should work on your personal computer.

About BrowZine

BrowZine is a mobile app / website intended to make it easier for you to stay current. It allows you to select journals of interest to you and create a "bookcase." It will deliver each table of contents as new issues are released. You can then download and read the articles that we subscribe to. Helpful things to know about BrowZine:

  • This FAQ tells you how to download BrowZine.
  • You'll need an EZproxy Remote Access account to download articles.
  • Some of our subscriptions are embargoed. This happens with content through aggregators (such as ProQuest), and means that the publisher will hold back the most recent issues. Journal embargoes can last anywhere from six months to 18 months. In the case of embargoed journals, you will see the current table of contents, but you will not be able to access the article.
  • Bear in mind too, that we are limited to requesting five articles per journal title via interlibrary loan. If you have questions about journal subscriptions, contact the Library Director.

About LibKey Nomad

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that works with the Chrome browser. It can not be used on DoD computers, but is useful if you do research at home. It will display a "Download PDF" link if you go to an article that we subscribe to or is available via open access.

  • This link takes you to the LibKey Nomad information page, including the link to download the extension.
  • Again, you will need an EZproxy Remote Access account to access articles.

One Last Thing...

Please remember that the library team is here to help. We know connectivity issues are frustrating and all too common. We purchase a lot of information and link you to even more information provided by DHA, and there are a variety of ways that links can go wrong. When this happens, please let us know what you were trying to access (complete citation) and where in the process things broke down. We'll try to fix the problem, but more importantly, we will do everything we can to get you the information you need.
