EndNote is a bibliographic management package – it allows you to build up your personal database of references which can be formatted automatically in Word when you write up your thesis. It is available for use on campus or can be bought at a discounted price (currently around £69) for use at home. You can find more information about EndNote in Blackboard.
There is also a web version of EndNote – EndNote web which can be used anywhere for free during your time at Swansea although it has slightly less functionality than the full package. The workshop will introduce both versions and you can choose which you prefer to work on during the session.
