 What is EndNote?

EndNote is reference management software designed to make your academic life a little easier by allowing you to build a collection of references for your research. It can help take the stress out of referencing properly, helping you organise your lists of references and create bibliographies. It allows you to :

  • Find and import references downloaded from library catalogues and databases directly into your own personal EndNote library
  • Store, organise and search for references in your EndNote library
  • Add citations to your word-processed document and create your bibliography in a number of citation styles

 Why use EndNote?

  • You need to provide accurate references to all the sources you use to avoid plagiarism - EndNote makes this easier!
  • Using EndNote ensures you cite your references in the correct style for your School or purpose

How can I find out more?

  • Teach Yourself EndNote, sign up to a semester 1 EndNote workshop or look at the videos and webinars (see right of page).
