Tomorrow, 9th February is National Libraries Day! So while you’re celebrating your local library and the library staff who strive to connect you with the information you need, why not check out two new tools from Thomson Reuters that streamline research and provide referencing tools wherever your discoveries happen – in the library or on the go. We’re talking about the eagerly anticipated EndNote iPad app and a new free RefScan iPhone app.
The EndNote iPad app enables EndNote X6 users to easily find and import references from online databases into their EndNote library, then use the EndNoteSync capability to update, manage, share and synchronise their references in EndNote desktop and EndNote Web with just one click.

Thomson Reuters’ RefScan app lets users simply search for published material on their iPhone or scan the DOIs from printed documents to quickly look up in Web of Knowledge. Then they can store their findings in their own free, password-protected library in EndNote Web to retrieve anytime, anywhere with internet access. Find out more and download free now.
Thomson Reuters has been particularly busy this month; they’ve released a new X6.0.1 update for Windows and Mac to enhance and maintain the software’s comprehensive functionality; and caused a buzz with news of an introductory offer on the eagerly-anticipated EndNote iPad App due for launch January 2013!
The EndNote X6.0.1 Windows update delivers Windows 8 capability, new global formatting options, the ability to quickly locate missing PDFs and more. The patch also adds a new punctuation option in the style editor as featured in the EndNote X6 Mac release earlier this year.
The EndNote X6.0.1 Mac update provides improved EndNoteSync, PDF folder importing, Ibid handling for citations with Cited Pages and more! Individual EndNote X6 users can access these free updates from the EndNote “Help” menu or by downloading them here. Site licence contacts can find both the Windows and Mac MSI installer for X6.0.1 here.
This month Thomson Reuters also confirmed that the EndNote iPad App will be launched in January 2013. This new tool will let you add, edit, group, copy and email citations on your iPad, then sync them to your EndNote Web account so you can build your reference library wherever you are. Anyone who registers their copy of EndNote X6 with Thomson Reuters by 1st January 2013 will be able to buy and download the EndNote iPad App for just $1 when it’s available.

Last week, Adept’s bibliographic software expert, Stephanie Marshall, travelled around the country with Tilla Edmunds, Product Manager at Thomson Reuters, to hold a series of ultra successful software user meetings. These unique EndNote VIP events (which happen no where else in the world) provide key UK customers in education with a chance to talk to Thomson face-to-face and exchange knowledge. We wanted to bring our roadshow within easy reach of attendees, so we held our meetings at key cities across the country, including Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London. We were pleased to see both new and familiar faces.
Participants got a sneak preview of brand-new EndNote X6 ahead of its official public launch later this summer. They were keen to see the inclusion of a new Sync button to quickly, easily and automatically synchronise desktop and web-based libraries, as well as new record read/unread status indicators and the ability to rate favourite or frequently-used references.
Attendees also got a first look at the keenly awaited EndNote ipad app due out in the autumn to coincide with the planned EndNote X6 Mac release. This new tool will complement EndNote on the desktop by putting on-the-go PDF viewing, annotating and emailing capabilities at the disposal of ipad users. The app also enables users to add, edit, group, copy and email citations, as well as sync them with their EndNote Web account.
Adept and Thomson gained plenty of software feedback, as well as new insight into the needs of our bibliographic software customers in education and research, and the issues they face with maximising the use of EndNote/EndNote Web on campus. A rewarding and enlightening roadshow for all involved.
