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.

If you need help before then you can:

Desktop EndNote beginners workshops

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.

We are offering EndNote online workshops suitable for beginners at the following times this term:

  • Wednesday 8 May 14:00 - 16:00
  • Wednesday 22 May 14:00 - 16:00

If you are unable to make these times you can:

Already using Desktop EndNote?

If you are already using Desktop EndNote and have specific questions about using it, please make an appointment with your subject liaison librarian for 1-1 help.

Mendeley beginners workshops

Mendeley can be downloaded free and is available via Apps Anywhere on campus PCs. It is suitable for use by all levels of students 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.

We are offering Mendeley workshops suitable for beginners at the following times this term:

  • Wed 15 May 14:00 - 15:00
  • Wed 29 May 14:00 - 15:00
