EndNote: Building the Library

Using EndNote to manage your bibliographic information.

Hints and tips

Your final bibliography or reference list will be based on your EndNote library. Make sure the data in your library is accurate and in the correct fields for your citations to display correctly.

Get your library right! Your in-text citations and bibliography/reference list will also be correct.

Your EndNote Library

 Your EndNote Library is a database of your references.

There are many ways to add references to your EN library - you can:

  • add references manually
  • export references direct from databases
  • connect from within EN to a limited number of databases to import references
  • import data from pdf files
  • import saved text files
