EndNote is reference management software available to all Lincoln students and staff. Once created an EndNote library can be used to import citations in hundreds of styles into MS Word, and to manage information. This two hour session includes introduction to using EN (first hour), and more advanced functions and features of EN including organising and customising the library, stable URLs, attaching files, and using the menus (second hour). Participants are welcome to attend one or two hours of the session.

Downloading from Library databases
You can search for references using Lincoln University Library databases, and import these references into EndNote. This is quicker and more accurate than typing them in manually.
There are three methods you can use to import reference information from databases into EndNote:
1. Direct Exporting
2. Using Import Filters – See Advanced Features
3. Using Connection Files – See Advanced Features
Direct exporting is the quickest and easiest method for getting references from a database into EndNote. Not all databases offer a direct export option. At present the databases that use the direct export function include:
- Web of Knowledge – Including CAB, Current Contents and Web of Science
- Avery Index
- Expanded Academic and General OneFile
- Google Scholar
Contact the Welcome Desk (Library, Teaching and Learning: Level 0) or either the Postgraduate Liaison Librarian or the Undergraduate Teaching Librarian.
