Although you can use EndNote Basic without the Installers, they provide important power and advantages: 

#1  Set up your computer to EXPORT citations from Libraries' subscription databases into EndNote Basic quickly and in batches. 

#2  Set up MS WORD so you can add citations to your papers.  This is called "Cite While You Write," and is the most important feature of EndNote Basic.

#3  The CAPTURE button puts a button in your bookmarks so you can "capture" the citation to webpages.
