Curious about EndNote?

Curious about EndNote but not exactly sure what it does or how to get started? Don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered.

EndNote is a bibliographic management software that you can use to develop and manage a collection of references within a central library. These references are either exported from library databases or web platforms such as Google Scholar, or you can create them manually.

With EndNote, you can also:

  • create groups of references based around specific work
  • attach full-text PDFs and annotate them
  • insert in-text citations into your Word document and create your reference list using Cite While You Write (CWYW)

And so much more!

  • Contact the Library for help! If you feel like you need some further support beyond our self-help resources above, you can seek assistance from a Librarian.

Our top tip

Remember that EndNote doesn’t replace the need to learn and understand referencing. The Library rule of thumb is to make sure you’re comfortable with referencing manually before getting started with EndNote.
