EndNote & Citation Tools


Download EndNote

EndNote is a reference management solution with both a desktop and online component.

EndNote allows you to import references from library catalogues or other electronic databases, and to search, edit and integrate referencing and citation into a Word document.

Obtaining EndNote

Western Sydney University students and staff may download one copy of the software to a personal computer from the Library website.
