What is EndNote?

EndNote is software for the organisation and management of bibliographic citations and references. It enables users to:

  • save, organise and edit references
  • link to Word to cite references and create bibliographies

It is available in a desktop and a web version. We recommend that staff and postgraduate students use EndNote Desktop. EndNote Online is ideal for undergraduates, but does not have the full functionality of the desktop version.

For information on using EndNote Desktop (version X9) at Lancaster University see the EndNote Desktop Guide, for using EndNote Online see the EndNote Online Guide.

Both include a downloadable Quick Start guide to help you get going.
