Reference Management: Home


EndNote and Reference Manager are two reference/bibliographic management programs that allow you to collect and organise references from your literature search - and then insert them into your write-up formatted in whichever style you choose.

Those are the two options fully supported in the University - but there are also a number of free alternatives that you can explore for yourself, including Mendeley, Zotero and (for the Mac only) Papers.


We provide guides for both EndNote and Reference Manager, downloadable from our pages on these resources. We also provide training sessions for staff and research postgraduates - find details of how to book a session on the respective guides.

Other Software

There are a number of alternative reference management tools available. You'll find information about some of these in this guide - but the Library does not provide any formal support for any of these at the moment.
