EndNote 20

EndNote software allows you to create bibliographies and in-text citations the easy way, eliminating time-consuming formatting and typing.

NOTE: SCU Library recommends EndNote for use by Postgraduate, Honours, and 3rd year students, as well as staff.
It is important that you are familiar with manually creating references in your style before 
using any automated tool. EndNote won't teach you how to reference, and it won't automatically fix incorrectly entered data. Only consider using EndNote if you have a large number of references to manage.


This guide offers an Introduction to EndNote 20 Desktop for new users and also covers advanced aspects of EndNote for more experienced users.

What can you do with EndNote

  • Create a customised library to hold and manage all your references.
  • Attach PDFs, or any other kind of file to your references. Read and annotate attached PDFs. 
  • Organise your library using groups.
  • Insert references in Word and create citations and a bibliography matching the requirements of your selected bibliographic styles.
