Bibliographic citations tools can help staff and students reference correctly. The primary bibliographic citation tool supported by FedUni Library is EndNote. EndNote includes both EndNote Web and EndNote Desktop.

EndNote Web is recommended for undergraduates and enables students to:

  • capture references from the Library’s QuickSearch, databases, library catalogues, or enter them manually
  • store, arrange and generate references for assignments in various citation styles
  • share online ‘groups’ (i.e. reference lists) with other students (great for group assignments)

EndNote Desktop (and EndNote Web) is recommended for researchers and includes various features such as:

  • Live connection with Word for Windows/Mac that is easy to establish and maintain
  • Greater range of citation options and bibliographic styles
  • Automatic sync both ways between EndNote Desktop and EndNote Web
  • Greater range of templates for references (i.e. books, journals, newspapers, tort, etc.)
  • Features supporting PDF, such as annotations and search
  • Features specifically suited to working with large documents such as theses

You can access EndNote Web via the internet at using your email address to sign up.

Access to EndNote Desktop is currently available on campus via the Software Center program on any FedUni computer. Downloads for personal computers can be found here.

See the Library’s EndNote for undergraduates and EndNote for researchers subject guides for how to get started using EndNote.
