Why would I use EndNote?

  • EndNote is a brilliant time saver.
  • EndNote stores all of your references in one place, including files like pdfs.
  • EndNote can make a bibliography in any style you want, like Harvard, APA, Vancouver, Chicago, AGLC footnotes, or styles required for publishing in a wide range of journals.
  • You can make extensive notes about each reference in EndNote in preparation for your literature review.
  • You don't even have to type the reference details in yourself; you can export the information from library databases or catalogues, or Google Scholar.

Sample EndNote Library


Getting EndNote

EndNote software for PC or Macintosh is free to all students and staff at SCU. To obtain the software, go to the Library EndNote guide.

Using EndNote

When you first install EndNote, we recommend viewing the Introduction to EndNote video.  You should also work through the information in the Library EndNote guide. EndNote is not difficult to master, but there are some simple rules for putting your references into EndNote, and for using it to write your papers and format bibliographies.

Training videos

Clarivate (the EndNote publisher) provides a range of official training videos.
