Workshops and Classes: Referencing: Endnote

Details and booking

Referencing: Endnote (Introduction to)

EndNote 20 is a desktop-based reference management tool for Windows and Mac users, which helps you build libraries of references and insert them into your Word document as in-text citations or footnotes and automatically generate bibliographies. This introduction to EndNote is open to all University of Oxford students, researchers and staff and teaches you how to use the software so that you can effectively manage your references.

Ahead of the session, you will be asked to watch a 5 minute video, which introduces you to EndNote and provides you with instructions on how to download and install EndNote 20, which we ask you to complete before the live session. You will not be given dedicated exercises to complete during the session, but having EndNote 20 installed allows you to follow along while the instructors present (if you wish) and gives you time to troubleshoot any issues that may arise during installation of the software. The link to the video will be emailed upon booking.

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.
