Endnote news


EndNote is the reference management program that the University of Borås provide for their students and researchers. The program simplifies your reference management and can help you manage your bibliographic references and create the right type of reference for you. Most databases and our library discovery system Summon supports an export of references to EndNote. It’s then easy to connect Endnote to Word so that you can export references into your working document and create a proper reading list. Be sure to select the correct format for your references, the most common are Harvard and APA, and you will find information and guides to both on the library website. But be sure to read the instructions of your particular teacher and institution for which referencesystem that should be used.

We’ve made two short guides, they are in swedish but it’s easy to follow them just by looking at the instructions. How to export from Summon to Endnote and How to export from Google Scholar to Endnote. Otherwise you are welcome to the informationdesk, and we will show you how to make it work.

A novelty is that Endnote is soon updated to Endnote X6, then a sync function between desktop Endnote and WebEndnote will work, this was not previously possible. There is also an app for iPad that can be downloaded from iTunes, which also can sync to your Endnote account. But importantly, this applies only when the X6 version is in place, which will take a couple of weeks yet, and we will have to return to it.
