Managing citations and EndNote


The University has a site license for EndNote, a popular bibliographic management application. With EndNote software, you can create a personalised database of references. The software allows you to input references manually, or import them from a database (such as ABI or Web of Knowledge). From this, you can then create a bibliography for essays, dissertations or articles in your preferred referencing style.

ITS provide general support for EndNote, including how to obtain a copy. Please see IT services EndNote Information pages.

Library System update July 2015

The Library changed its system in July 2015. A couple of settings may need to be changed in your referencing software.
