End Note software is designed to help researchers organize
their references and create bibliographies. End Note is available for
purchase for Windows and Mac from the website. You may also download
a free trial version. Try the Firefox tool to format references
to web pages. An End Note library is a collection of references, each
containing the information required to create a bibliography. The references
may also include supplemental information such as keywords, abstracts,
notes and URLs. You can enter references manually but End Note automatically
downloads all the information needed for any references you mark from
online databases, websites, ebooks and etc. It integrates with BlackBoard,
if you're using it for class, as well as research. It generates citations
and reference pages for most word processing software in any format.

This service not only allows users to search its database of conferences
using multiple criteria, it also provides a service to track different
events for any changes that their organizers may post. While Eventseer
is largely focused on technical subjects,
provides a similar service but in a much wider array of topics. Both
of these services are free, but Eventseer is a clear winner in terms
of the number of events in its database.
