Upgrade to EndNote X7
In September 2013 the University upgraded to EndNote X7.
The upgrade does not affect your work, your EndNote libraries are available as normal and you can now take advantage of a range of new features.
If you are working on a University machine which has not been upgraded to X7 please contact your Computing Officer or ISS to request an upgrade.
See what's new by watching the webinar from Adept Scientific below.
Newcastle U (Library catalogue) connection file
The Library changed servers in August 2013 which affected the Newcastle U (Library catalogue) connection file in EndNote. If you are using EndNote on a University machine or via RAS then the connection file has been fixed across the system.
If you are using a personal copy of EndNote on your own computer you will need to replace the Newcastle U (Library catalogue) connection file on your system. Download the fixed connection file below.
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
