EndNote is a piece of software that will assist you to collect, store, organise and use the references you find for your assignments, essays and research papers.
References can be entered into EndNote manually, or they can be transferred electronically from library databases and catalogues.
An EndNote file (called a Library) can hold thousands of references. Groups can be created to make a Library easier to manage.
References can be inserted from EndNote into Microsoft Word documents, and formatted in the referencing style of your choice (including APA 6th). It is very easy to change between referencing styles, or modify styles to suit specific requirements.
Use the tabs above to find out more about the features of EndNote, and how the LRC can help you.
EndNote is pre-installed on William Angliss Institute computers in the LRC and rooms A220, A221, A340, A434, A435, C113, D207, D209, D211 and D212, so you do not need to download and install the EndNote software.
To download EndNote on your own computer or laptop, go to MyWAI > My Links> My Higher-Ed, and follow the instructions in the document below.
Note: If a previous version of EndNote (... X7, X8) is already installed on your device, uninstall this first before downloading the current version (X9).
EndNote Desktop is not available to VET students, but there are other options to assist you with referencing. Speak to LRC staff for more information.
If you already running EndNote on your personal Windows devices, the latest Windows update is a new 64-bit version, which cannot initially be updated via the EndNote ‘Check for Updates’ option. Please follow the instructions below to perform the update.
For EndNote users who already have X9.3.1, X9.3, X9.2, X9.1.1, X9.1 and X9.0 installed:
This will ensure any new or existing EndNote library files are converted to the new format. Older versions of EndNote cannot open the new format.
At present, WAI computers are running X9.2
All students and staff at William Angliss Institute are expected to use the APA 6th Referencing style when citing (referring to) the work of others in their writing. The APA Referencing style is an included style in EndNote and will format references according to the rules of the style. However it is still important to have your own understanding of the style.
