This course is intended to build on the introductory EndNote course and give attenders practical experience of editing EndNote output styles.

Using EndNote will enable you to keep a note of references as you research online so that you will always be able to document your sources correctly. It can save you time as you should never need to retype references and you can alter their layout with a couple of mouse-clicks.
