Endnote referencing software
Endnote Web Software
Once you are comfortable with the basics of referencing you can learn to use Endnote Basic referencing tool. We have a variety of referencing styles loaded into Endnote Basic.
There are two versions of Endnote.. There is EndNote X9 which is paid software and there is Endnote Web which is free and which we recommend.
Note : login to endnote through Web of Science when off campus. use the link below:
Endnote (via Web of Science)
The link gets you into Web of Science. Once in, click on Sign in link at top of page and create account using the drop down Register link. Once you ok your registration in your email then go into Web of Science again and click on the Endnote link at the top. You should then have access to the Harvard ITS style in Microsoft Word.
Endnote Web is a website that you register with (whatever email address you like) and save your citations to. (a citation is just information about the paper or book)
You then download and install a plugin (an app that plugs into another app) from endnoteweb.com and it plugs into word. You can then access all the citations and get the plugin to automatically do your referencing. We have guides and help for you to get started and we also do on campus and online tutorials to give you help. Just email the library help desk for an online appointment. firstname.lastname@example.org
Further information is available in the printable guides below.
There is some really good free software out there that we recommend if you don’t wish to use endnote. On of the cons of using other software is that the ITSligo Harvard referencing style can’t be used with it. You won’t get as much support from library staff either. We are expert in using endnote web, so support would be better.
