Managing your references

​What is EndNote?

EndNote is a reference management system that enables you to:

  • grab references from Library QuickSearch, journal databases, library catalogues, and other sources

  • use EndNote to insert a formatted reference list into your own documents

  • organise and manage your references (re-use a textbook reference, for example)

  • find references using one computer, insert your reference list later on another computer

To Access EndNote and set up an account: My EndNote Web

For Undergraduates, read more information about how to use EndNote Web in this guide.

For Researchers, the EndNote Desktop guide will assist you in using, managing and sharing your referencing data. 


Avoid potential plagiarism by using Turnitin to compare your work with internet content, journal databases and other students' work and receive a report on similarities.
