EndNote is a licensed software program that enables you to build and manage your own 'libraries' of references, with which you can create citations and bibliographies using your word processor.

EndNote Desktop is available on UCL Desktop Services.  Staff may download it to locally-managed UCL computers from ISD.  EndNote Desktop is not available for download to personal computers.

Offsite Access

An online version of EndNote is available for use on any computer.  The online version has fewer features and less capacity than the desktop version but offers the same basic functions.  Please be advised: synchronise your EndNote Online library with one EndNote Desktop library only
