Workshops and Classes: Referencing: Endnote

Details and booking

Referencing: Endnote (Introduction to)

EndNote X9 is a desktop based reference management tool for Windows and Macs which helps you to build libraries of references and insert them into your Word document as in text citations or footnotes and automatically generate bibliographies. This online introduction to EndNote is open to all University of Oxford students and staff.

You will be asked to watch a ~6 minute video ahead of the session, which introduces you to EndNote and its basic features. We will build upon this in the workshop outlining additional functionality and Oxford-specific details which will help you use the software. The link to the video will be shared with you upon booking.

We also invite you to send any questions you have in advance to for the instructors to cover in the session. There will also be opportunities to ask questions in the class.

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Understand EndNote and what it can do for you
  • Add references to EndNote from a range of sources
  • Manage your references in an Endnote library
  • Add in text citations and /or footnotes to your essays and papers
  • Create bibliographies

Intended Audience:  Oxford students, researchers and other staff.

For any postgraduate students, researchers and university staff based on the Old Road Campus or in Medical Sciences Division departments elsewhere in Headington, there are Medical Sciences specific workshops on EndNote which you may prefer to attend.
