MLA referencing style: EndNote

A guide to using the MLA referencing system for in-text citations and reference lists.

What is EndNote and should I be using it?

EndNote is referencing software that enables you to create a library of references (author, title, etc) from your readings.

EndNote interacts with word processing programs like Word and lets you insert your references into a Word document and automatically format them correctly in your chosen reference style.

EndNote allows you to organise:

  • references
  • images
  • PDFs
  • Web sites
  • other documents

into your own personal library, and generates reference lists as you write. It also allows collaboration using EndNote Web.

To use EndNote successfully you need to invest some time in learning to use the program. Unless your course involves a significant amount of literature searching you may find it more efficient to create your references manually. If you're unsure about whether to use EndNote you can consult a Librarian in your subject Library for more information.
