Reference Management: Home


EndNote is reference/bibliographic management software 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.

Endnote is 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 EndNote, downloadable from these pages. We also provide an online training course.

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.
