A detailed listing of library resources for Aeronautics and Astronautics

Latex at Purdue

The Graduate School and the College of Engineering recommend use of LaTex for preparing publications, theses, and dissertations.  Mark Senn of the Engineering Computing Network has prepared materials and recommended resources for LaTex.

Citation Management

Question:  What citation managers does Purdue University Libraries support?

Answer:  Yes, the libraries support major managers, including EndNote Desktop, EndNote Web, and  Zotera.  Links to the Libraries resources for EndNote and Zotera prepared by Purdue Librarians are listed.  I am also enclosing a link for the free Mendelay citation manager since many of you may use it.  The guide for Mendelay was done by Syracuse University Librarians.

Endnote and BibTeX

Questions:

What information is available about BibTeX which works with LaTeX?  Can EndNote and BibTeX which is used with LaTeX interact?  Is it possible to move records from EndNote to BibTeX and from BibTeX to EndNote?

EndNote software is often used to keep track of references for publications, including journal articles, conference papers, and reports. It can also be used to download records from databases. Faculty and graduate students typically use LaTeX and BibTeX software when preparing publications and theses. 

Answer: Yes, it is possible.  Answered 3/29/2010 and 3/8/2010.  Charlotte Erdmann

Here are some internet resources to contain help for using BibTeX and EndNote.
