About EndNote



EndNote is software that can help you manage citations for your research projects. It can automate much of the work of organising and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing. EndNote can connect to online sources such as the library website and article databases, and can output results in over 1,000 different bibliographic styles.

There are two versions of EndNote, a standalone desktop version and a web based-version called EndNote Web. Once you have created your EndNote Web account, you can sync your libraries so a change in one will automatically be reflected in the other. See the EndNote Web tab for additional information on how to set up that account. 

The University of Lincoln has a license for EndNote which allows students and staff to download a copy onto a University PC for free.
