Computers and connecting

Computer workstations

Computer workstations are available 24/7 at all MUHC Libraries. All have Internet access and Microsoft Office software. They are available for MUHC staff, for McGill residents, researchers and students, for stagiaires and for CÉGEP nursing students.



EndNote, a citation management program, allows users to collect and organize references from databases (Medline via PubMed or Ovid, CINAHL, etc.) and other sources, and insert them into manuscripts as properly formatted citations.

Endnote is available on several of the public computers at the MGH and Glen libraries, and on all computers at the Neuro Library.

EndNote training sessions are regularly offered by the MUHC Libraries.


Log into your own Zotero account from libraries computers (#9 to #15 at the Glen). Zotero is an open-source bibliographic manager that will help you organize, cite and share your research projects.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Glen library to sign up for a virtual or on-site Zotero workshop.
