Evaluate bibliographic software based on ease of import/export, ability to organize pdf's and storage capacity, indexing/tagging, annotation ability, sharing features, citation formatting options and CiteWhileYouWrite plug-in options.See the EndNote Library Guide for links to a comparison chart.
Always make sure that all of the metadata from a citation has been saved, and save a permalink to the article (PMID, doi, or publisher provided) in the URL field. This is the best way to share the citation with others.
