EndNote online beginners workshops

The EndNote online workshops have finished for this term; we'll be running more in the Autumn term.

EndNote online is suitable for undergraduate and masters students. It is free to use, can be accessed anywhere and has all the functionality you need.

Desktop EndNote beginners workshops

The Desktop EndNote workshops have finished for this term; we'll be running more next term.

Desktop EndNote is available via any PC on campus via the Apps Anywhere service and can be purchased for your own computer for around £98. It offers much more sophisticated functionality and storage capacity than EndNote online, so it is more suitable for researchers.

Mendeley beginners workshops

The Mendeley workshops have finished for this term, we'll be running more next term.

It is suitable for use by all types of student and researchers, although EndNote can be a more powerful tool for systematic literature reviews and if you need to edit referencing styles to submit to specific journals.
