EndNote (EN) Guide


What is Endnote?

EndNote is a software application for storing, managing, searching and sharing your references.

EndNote can help you:

  • Format references in the appropriate style
  • Add citations and bibliographies in Word documents
  • Share your references with others

Note: EndNote will not teach you how to reference correctly, nor will it do your referencing for you. You still need to have a good understanding of the principles of referencing before using any citation manager. For guidance on referencing in the various styles used by Murdoch University, please go to our referencing guide.

Murdoch University has a license to EndNote, which allows you to download a copy to your own device for your research and study.

You can access a PDF copy of our EndNote Training Guide below. Please consult the training guide first; if you have more specific issues please visit our Ask a Librarian desk from Monday – Friday 10am -2pm.
