EndNote is a bibliographic management package. Use it to create your own database (library) of references. You can then embed citations in your Word documents and automatically build your bibliography (in a variety of styles, e.g. Harvard, Numbered).
Versions of EndNote
There are two versions of EndNote:
- EndNote Web (also known as EndNote Basic) - a web-based product which provides basic reference management and use functionality. An enhanced version is available to University members by registering via the Web of Science. Recommended for undergraduates and masters students.
- Desktop EndNote - a software programme which is installed on all University PCs managed by Information Technology. The software can also be installed on University owned PCs or purchased for your own computer. Recommended for PhD students and staff.
EndNote is just one of many options for managing your references electronically. Although the Library only supports EndNote, we have put together a guide outlining the main alternatives, see Managing references for more information.
