Information and guidance on using Desktop EndNote and EndNote online to manage bibliographic references.

EndNote is a reference 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, for example, Harvard or Numbered).

Versions of EndNote

There are two versions of EndNote:

  • Desktop EndNote - a fully-featured reference management program which can be requested from DTS and installed on any computer. It is also available on campus via the University's Apps Anywhere service. 
  • EndNote online (also known as EndNote basic) - a web-based product which provides basic reference management and functionality. Sync a Desktop EndNote library with EndNote online to have an automatically updated cloud backup.

Alternatives to EndNote

EndNote is just one of many options for managing your references electronically. We have put together a guide outlining the main alternatives.
