EndNote referencing software

EndNote is a referencing software tool for publishing and managing bibliographies, citation and references when writing essays and articles.

It is compatible with both Windows and Mac.

We offer classes to suit all ability levels.

Other resources include the USQ EndNote workbook or the EndNote Training YouTube channel. Please note that USQ databases cannot be searched via Online Search from your EndNote library.

USQ Library Services offer Introduction and Advanced classes on-campus as well as online. Classes are suitable for both Mac and PC users, however the on-campus class will be held in a PC lab. Students attending an on-campus class may choose to bring their own laptop.
