EndNote Essentials

As your study and research becomes more complex, the number of references that you need to keep track of and manage increases. EndNote is software that helps with this. It is like a container where you can keep all of your references, organise them in groups, and access them whenever you need. EndNote can automatically insert in-text references into your document, and generate a reference list.

EndNote Essentials is an online course to help you learn about all the skills that you need to get up and running with EndNote.
