"I cannot imagine how anyone could write their thesis without using EndNote - I would go quite mad if I had to do all my referencing manually!"

Doctoral Candidate, University of Hull

EndNote is an extremely sophisticated bibliographic management package. It is available as a desktop program on all open-access university machines and as an online program to use from anywhere. The two versions can sync with each other to keep your own library of references up-to-date.

 Accessing EndNote


EndNote X9 (desktop)

On campus

EndNote X9 is available on all open-access computers on campus. It can also be downloaded to all university-owned machines by accessing the Software Centre from the Windows menu or via the ICT SharePoint site.

At home

EndNote X9 can only be used for free at home if you are working on a university-owned PC or laptop.

Buying EndNote X9

Many postgraduate students choose to buy a copy of EndNote at a cost of approximately £80 for their own laptop or home computer, please use this link: Buy EndNote and choose the EndNote X9 Student-Download option. You will need to send a scan of your student ID to get the educational discount.

EndNote online

Most undergraduate students use the free online version when working at home. To access EndNote Online follow this link and create an account using your university email. You can configure a desktop library to sync with the web version (see below) and so use the full X9 version when on campus. Once you have gained access to EndNote Online, you should download the free Cite While You Write installer (available from the Downloads tab) so that you can cite within MS Word on your home computer.


Mobile app

There is a free EndNote app available for the iPad which means you can read and make notes on papers in your EndNote library whilst you are on the go, or in the comfort of your armchair. Just search for EndNote in the app store.
