EndNote: EndNote Training

Online training

This comprehensive EndNote Essential course from Lynda.com will get you up and running with the desktop version of EndNote X8 for Windows users.

In addition to completing the above course we recommend that you watch the following videos for supplementary help

 

Please note  - the videos below were recorded using Endnote X7.  The main difference is that the appearance of the icons  has changed. The icons have the same names and functions, and appear in the same order.  Hover over the icons to see their names. We will replace these with videos using EndNote X8 as they become available.

Further EndNote online training

The Offical EndNote LibGuide - Created and maintained by the software producer 

The library recommends...

  • Only have one library
  • Keep an up to date back-up (compressed—library)
  • Remove duplicates from your library before citing in Word
  • When using EndNote with Word (Cite While You Write) use the edit and manage citations features to make any changes to the citation in your text  (e.g. add suffix text page numbers for a quote) or change a reference (e.g. leave the author name outside of brackets).

EndNote for MAC

We recommend that you start by following the EndNote Essential course in the box at the top of the page as the programme icons are similar and more intuitive for Windows and MAC users. In addition there are specific tutorials for MAC users on the EndNote Training YouTube channel

including:-

How to Use EndNote in 6 Minutes: Macintosh - A short introductory 5.19 minute video to EndNote X8

EndNote X8 on Macintosh: The Short Course - A 24 minute class covering the basics of using EndNote X8 on the Macintosh.
