Purpose of EndNote

With EndNote, you can:

  • put all your references into a library of citations
  • create, store, save, edit, and manage those references
  • attach full-text PDFs and annotate them within EndNote
  • import references from Primo Search, Google Scholar and our library databases directly into your EndNote library.

EndNote works with Microsoft Word. This means you can insert in-text citations into your Word document from EndNote and create your reference list.

Getting started with EndNote

It takes time to set up and learn EndNote so we recommend that you begin early. The Library has resources to help you get started.

First complete the Discover EndNote modules and if you need more help, join our online library workshop or you can watch a recorded session anytime.
