Reference management software automates the creation of bibliographies for many scholarly publications (for example, essays, theses, research papers, grant proposals, curricula vitae, book manuscripts...) a tedious and error-prone activity when performed manually. Researchers and students can save countless hours of typing and interpreting style requirements of scholarly publications by simply selecting the publication by name and generating a perfectly formatted document.

There are several different brands of reference management software, most with a free version and a more complete paid version with extra features or storage. For a comprehensive list see Wikipedia's comparison of reference management software - examples include Zotero, Mendeley and Colwiz.

Trinity College Library Dublin provides training and support for EndNote, a widely-used bibliographic reference software tool for publishing and managing bibliographies. See the compatibility list for advice on which word processor software can be used with which versions.

EndNote allows users to:

  • Create a personalised database of references
  • Type the references or import them from a database
  • Create a bibliography for a thesis, assignment or journal article in the reference style required, and easily change the reference style

Trinity College Dublin has a site licence for EndNote and current staff and students are permitted to install a copy of the software on College-owned machines.

EndNote is also installed on PCs in College Computer Rooms.

Staff and students who wish to use EndNote on non-College-owned PCs may purchase the desktop software from the distributor using this link or register to use the free EndNote Online version.
