EndNote 20 is Here
Posted On: Wednesday, February 17, 2021 - 14:27 by Sarah Cantrell

EndNote 20, a citation management tool, is now available to download from Duke OIT. The primary goal of the update was to create a new interface design that would be more intuitive for users to operate. The result is a more modern, less cluttered program.

In addition to the interface update, EndNote 20 has made the deduplication of references easier by allowing users to search by DOI and PMCID (note: not PMID) during the deduplication process. Further, there are changes to how one views and annotates PDFs.

Duke Medical Center Archives Spotlight on Black History at Duke Health
Posted On: Tuesday, February 9, 2021 - 10:50 by Rebecca Williams

With the events of the past year, it has probably become clichéd to say that “we are living in historic times”. However, as we celebrate Black History Month this year, the reality of systemic racism and injustice is forefront in many of our minds. An important first step to addressing systemic racism is learning more about how race and racism is embedded in our history, including that of Duke Health.  The Duke University Medical Center Archives seeks to preserve materials that document the history of Duke Health and make them available for research and education.
