Someone said I should use EndNote to help me with APA referencing in my assignments. What’s EndNote and how do I start using it?
EndNote is software that compiles a list of resources you have used in your research. EndNote can then work with Microsoft Word to insert in text citations and a list of references in APA 6th style into your Word document as you write. To make the most of EndNote, it helps to first have an understanding of the basics of APA 6th referencing.
EndNote is installed on computers on all AUT campuses and can also be downloaded to your laptop/personal computer.
For a full introduction to using EndNote at AUT, see AUT Library’s EndNote guide. Starting out, you might find the following tabs the most useful: ‘Get the Software’ and ‘Guides to EndNote X6’ (PDFs of workshop handouts you can work through in your own time).
You can also book an EndNote workshop here: http://www.library.aut.ac.nz/i-need/workshops
