If you are using a large number of references (books, journal articles, etc), you may find it helpful to use a citation management product, such as EndNote, to gather, sort, and manage those references. Creating an EndNote Library enables you to:
- gather your references, either directly from the database/catalogue/web (where you are searching), or by typing them manually into EndNote
- keep your references together, in one location
- save your references in the preferred citation style (EndNote will do this for you)
- drop the references into your assignment, both “in text” and in the Reference List (the references will be inserted into Microsoft Word in your preferred citation style).
Workshops on setting up and using EndNote, and on downloading material into EndNote are available. See http://www.library.otago.ac.nz/endnote/index.html
