EndNote and EndNote Web
What are they?
When researching for assignments and dissertations, you will collect a large number of references to articles, books and other materials. 'EndNote' and 'EndNote Web' can help you keep an organised record of these references. Both versions enable you to:
- Import references from many of the Library's databases and the Library catalogue. You can then save, organise and edit them for use in your work.
- Cite While You Write: link up with word-processing programs such as Microsoft Word to produce correct citations and reference lists/bibliographies within your work.
Which should I use?
- EndNote Web is most suitable for undergraduates and taught postgraduates. It is a free online tool, available both on and off-campus, which allows you to retain references for the duration of your studies at university.
- EndNote is most suitable for research postgraduates and staff. It is an advanced desktop/software tool which is freely available via the on-campus network. Alternatively, you might prefer to purchase your own copy at a discounted rate -try a Firefox browser if you are unable to login via Internet Explorer. This would allow you to retain your references in perpetuity without needing to transfer them.
- To use the Library's custom Harvard Bath with EndNote on your own PC/laptop, you will need to save this file to your styles folder. Browse to the EndNote program file folder on your hard disk and paste or drop this file into the folder. It will then appear in your list of style options in EndNote

- References can easily be transferred between EndNote Web and EndNote: instructions.
