EndNote allows you to collect, organise and export your references and is invauable for anyone writing essays, dissertations, theses or journal articles. If the Library and Knowledge Service’s expert searching team run an evidence search for you, they can supply references in a format you can import into EndNote, if you ask.

EndNote will work with Microsoft Word, so you can prepare a manuscript in Word, and import and format references in any one of over 6,000 citation styles.

EndNote also offer EndNote Basic, a free web-only service, which has most of the features of the desktop version, and will sync with the full version, so if you create an account, then changes you make when using the full version in the library will sync with the online version, which you can use anywhere.
If you need support in using the package, book onto our popular Using EndNote course.
