Book your place on the Endnote or Mendeley class through PDMS. Classes run throughout October and November:

  • 15/10/20 – EndNote (2.30 – 3.30pm)
  • 23/10/20 – Mendeley (10-11am)
  • 30/10/20 – EndNote (10-11am)
  • 03/11/20 – EndNote (3-4pm)
  • 10/11/20 – Mendeley (3-4pm)
  • 19/11/20 – EndNote (11.30am-12.30pm)

Bibliographic systems are programmes that allow you to keep track of all your references. EndNote is a particularly powerful and sophisticated example of this type of software. You can use it to store your book and journal references, find PDFs and store the articles that you already have. Mendeley is particularly useful if you use a lot of PDFs as it is very good at importing and organising PDFs for you. It also has a large online community allowing you to find articles that others have saved in the same area.

Using the Word plug-in toolbar for either of these tools allows you to automatically format the references into the style (e.g. APA, Harvard, Chicago) that your School requires when writing your essay or dissertation. It will also generate your bibliography for you.
