Getting started with EndNote

What is EndNote?


EndNote is a reference management and bibliography-creation software. It allows you to collect, organise and store references, and create formatted citations and reference lists in Microsoft Word.



Referencing & EndNote

Before you begin using the EndNote program you need to know which referencing style your school uses and become familiar with that style. While EndNote will display references in your selected referencing style (e.g. APA, Chicago, Vancouver etc.) you need to be able to correct any mistakes or inconsistencies in your references. EndNote is not able to recognise incorrect or missing data required for your style. For more information about referencing please see:

Downloading EndNote

The EndNote program can be downloaded from the My Library tab in student OASIS or the staff Portal. Please note this download is only available to students and staff based in Australia.
