How to use Endnote in 5 minutes


Are you new to Endnote? Check out the Endnote Training channel on YouTube for helpful videos.

You can watch videos such as How to use Endnote in 5 minutes, What’s new in Endnote X8, and Endnote Basic and Online: Installing the Plug-Ins.

The video on How to use Endnote in 5 minutes was uploaded in December last year and provides a quick overview of the most popular features in Endnote for Windows.

Don’t worry Mac users, there’s also a video for you. It’s called How to use Endnote in 6 minutes. Apparently, it takes an extra minute to learn Endnote on a Mac. Sorry.

The How to use Endnote videos for both Mac and Windows take you through the essentials of Endnote, including how to:

  • Import a reference from a database
  • Create a custom group
  • Find Full Text to download PDFs for references
  • Insert a reference in a Word document
  • Format a bibliography
  • Add page number to a citation

Endnote is Griffith University’s recommended bibliographic management software.

Windows users, you can access Endnote on your staff computer by simply going to the Windows start button and selecting Installable Applications. Mac users, you’ll need to download and install the program from the Software Download Service on Google Drive.

You can also install Endnote on your personal computer (for free!). You can find comprehensive instructions for both Mac and Windows on Griffith Library’s Endnote webpage.

Want a face-to-face Endnote training session? You can attend a workshop run by Griffith University Library. The next available Endnote session is on Monday 20 March at the Nathan campus. All staff are welcome to attend but preference will be given to Higher Degree Research (HDR) candidates. Register now!
