|Compatibility with Article Databases
|Ease of compatibility varies. WilsonWeb requires downloading older filter; at present (3/10) does not work with Lexis-Nexis Academic .

|How to Get Database Records Into the Program

|One-click download of bibliographic info from MERLIN, amazon.com, Worldcat and others
|How It Works With Free Web
|Some compatibility with Google Scholar (adjust Scholar Preferences) but other free sites must be entered by hand
|One-click download of bibliographic info from many free sites; can add other sites as snapshots or links
|You can store compressed EndNote bibliographies on a USB drive but you can only open EndNote on computers with EndNote installed.
|If you download Portable Firefox, you can add Zotero to it and put the whole thing on your USB drive. Or create a free Zotero account online and use Zotero 2.0's syncing capability.
|A few dozen by default, hundreds more (2600+) available for download from the EndNote Support Web site
|A couple dozen by default, hundreds more (1100+) available for download from Zotero's Styles page.
|You can compress a bibliography and mail it to someone else who has EndNote as an attachment, or export in RIS format for users of other programs.
|You can export a bibliography into either a Zotero-readable format or RIS format for users of other programs. Zotero 2.0 allows online sharing "in the cloud."
