EndNote

EndNote is a software package that will assist you to collect, store, organise and output references in various referencing styles. References can be entered into EndNote manually or exported from databases and library catalogues. Note: referencing tools are not always accurate, you will need to check the accuracy of your references against the library referencing guides before publishing.

Set up

UTS staff and students can download a free copy of EndNote from the UTS/ITD software download page:

Instructions on how to install correctly are available on ServiceConnect. If you are unsure which version is best for your computer, check the EndNote compatibility page.

Note: if you are working on a UTS-provided Microsoft Windows device, then you can download EndNote from the Software Center.

The Library's EndNote video playlist has further instructions from downloading through to advanced EndNote use.

Online guides

These videos will take you through using EndNote including making a library, adding references, and exporting to Word.

Official guides are available from the EndNote support website.
