Reference management: Introducing EndNote Desktop

13 June 2024, 12.00 PM - 13 June 2024, 1.30 PM


If you are an undergraduate, we normally recommend that you use EndNote Online which should do everything you need. EndNote Desktop is best for researchers and academic staff. Visit our Using EndNote webpage to read more about the differences between these two versions of EndNote.

EndNote is a reference management package that lets you gather and organise bibliographic references, then cite them in various word processors whilst automatically creating a bibliography. 

This online workshop gets you up to speed with populating your EndNote Desktop library with relevant references in a variety of ways, and provides guidance in citing references in Word.

Downloading a copy of EndNote Desktop on to a personal (or UoB) device before the course is recommended (instructions can be found here:

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

  • search external databases and import references to EndNote
  • manually type in references
  • search for full text PDFs of references
  • search your EndNote library for specific references and organise them with groups
  • remove duplicate references, back up your files, and carry out other ‘housekeeping’ tasks
