About EndNote

 What is EndNote?

EndNote is a bibliographic database software package designed to make your academic life a little bit 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 direct into your own personal EndNote Library
  • Store, organise and search for references in your EndNote Library
  • Add correct citations to your word-processed document and create your bibliography in a number of citation styles

 Why use EndNote?

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