For the LMU community, EndNote is available on the intranet.
EndNote Web is available for students, faculty, and staff through the library's subscription to Web of Science.
As an alternative, Zotero is a free, open-source, web-based manager that can be downloaded as a Firefox extension.
In addition, there are a number of other citation managers that are available for purchase, such as RefWorks.
