The university supports the use of Endnote for reference managment. It allows you to build a library of references with accompanying notes and attached documents (including journal articles stored on your computer). You can download references from most databases and catalogues or enter them manually. In addition, it enables you to build your bibliography while you write and in the correct style for your discipline.
For more information see the ITS web page or the user guide below.

Setting up Endnote links in Google Scholar
Most of our databases automatically contain a link or button that enables you to export key references into Endnote. However in Google Scholar you need to set this up. Select Scholar Preferences which appears next to the search box on the Google Scholar home page. Scroll to the foot of the screen and select the drop down menu in the section Bibliography Manager. The default entry is BibTeX. Change this by selecting Endnote from the drop down list and click on Save Preferences. When you search Google Scholar you will now have the option to export references into Endnote.
This is a web-based version of the bibliographic software Endnote. It is accessed via the the database Web of Knowledge. By using Endnote Web you can keep your library up to date while working away from the university, without having to purchase a separate copy of the software for your laptop or computer. You can continue to import references from databases and create a bibliography for written documents. It also has the advantage of enabling you to share your Endnote library with colleagues or a supervisor. A tutorial is available to help you get started using Endnote Web.
There is no point finding useful research material on the web if you cannot find it again. A number of tools exist to help you bookmark key sites and annotate them so that when you return to them you can remember what it was that was so useful about them in the first place.
Use the link below to see some of these sites in preview mode and then link out to a full-size version. Use the tabs along the top of the screen to naviagate to Annotating the web and Organising the web.
