Begin by selecting the Collect tab, then choosing US Naval Academy from the list of library catalogs.

Enter your search terms.  This search is powered by EndNote, and so it will not function exactly like the Nimitz Library catalog.  However, it still draws results from our catalog records.

Alternatively, select the checkbox next to the Author information, then select a group to add this reference to.  See the Organize References tab for instructions on how to make groups, and Using References for how EndNote can create bibliographies from references you gather.
