EndNote: what is it?

EndNote is software supporting:

  • information management: collect information in one place, group in a relevant structure, comment, add keywords and much more;
  • referencing, footnotes and a bibliography: add references in a text, using the correct reference style ("output style"), make or change reference styles, set up bibliographic lists.

Using reference software has many advantages:

  • create a personal library of information gathered in journals, books, websites, blogs, patents and other sources;
  • create an overview of collected information, with the option to add the full text;
  • add citations, footnotes and a bibliography to a text and apply the correct reference style in a few clicks;
  • connect with databases, catalogues and Google Scholar to import references.



Students can use EndNote via Athena. It is also possible to install EndNote locally. Check helpdesk DICT for further information.
