Before the invention of referencing software, many students and staff had to enter in-text citations, reference lists and bibliographies manually and ensure they were correct according to the appropriate referencing style guidebook. Today, however, academic writing is made a little easier with the use of referencing software such as EndNote. EndNote is the software that is officially supported by the university.
EndNote is capable of formatting both in-text citations in the body of a document and the full reference at the end of the document in just a couple of clicks, once the software is installed and set up properly. EndNote is free for all students and staff. See the EndNote Subject Guide to learn how to download and use the software.
If you are an honours student, postgraduate student, HDR candidate or a staff member, it may be helpful to book and attend an EndNote for Windows or an EndNote for Mac workshop on your campus. Bookings open the week before each workshop and are conducted by an ICT Literacy Specialist.
Library and Learning Services workshops are FREE and available to all students, HDR candidates and staff.
To view the entire workshop timetable, please visit the Workshops and Training web page.
Booking is required for all computing and library workshops due to a limited number of places available in the training rooms.
Book online at griffith.edu.au/library/workshops-training.
All sessions are one hour in length unless specified. Booking is optional for Academic Skills Workshops.
