About EndNote

EndNote is a reference management software with features to:

  • Keep all your references and reference-related materials in a searchable personal library.
  • Synchronize your references between your online library, and your iPad, through EndNote Sync. 

  • Share your references with collaborators through EndNote Sync.

  • Use your references in word-processing documents to create formatted citations and bibliographies or independent reference lists.

Getting started

University Staff and Students

Please contact ITDs ( telling them if you are working an a Windows PC or a Mac and they will set up a support ticket and arrange for a download for the desktop version to your machine  

If you are working away from the University you then then use the online version at which allows you to synchronise documents between the online version of EndNote and the desktop version installed on the PC.



There are many tools available to help you with referencing.  At Teesside, we also support RefWorks which enables you to create and manage your own personal database of useful references. You can then use these to quickly compile a reference list .

Whichever tool you use, you'll need to adjust your references to make sure that they fit in with your appropriate style, for example with Cite them Right for Harvard.
