Managing your references using EndNote

EndNote is industry standard, reference management software that helps you organise and insert citations, references and bibliographies when researching and writing assignments and articles.

There are two versions of EndNote available to you as a BU student or member of staff and the Library can support you in using either or both, along with highlighting why this software is such a useful tool. 

  • Endnote Online: This is available through a web browser and you can learn to use it in about an hour. We recommend this version for undergraduates and masters students. For further support with using EndNote Online, please see our Library Guide.
  • EndNote 'Desktop' is software you download onto your computer, and has advanced functionality compared to Endnote Online. You can download it for BU and personal Windows 10 machines from AppsAnywhere; for installation on a BU Mac go to BU Self-Service; for a personal Mac, users should contact IT.  For further support with using EndNote Desktop, please see our Library Guide.
