EndNote is a client-based (i.e. installed on a computer) software package to enable you to:
- organise, store and manage your references
- create bibliographies automatically in MS Word or OpenOffice
- directly import references from Library journals databases (e.g Web of Science) and library catalogues including Royal Holloway’s and the British Library.
The latest version of EndNote is installed on all the machines in the student PC Labs.
