EndNote is most useful for researchers and postgraduate students who are collecting, storing, using and re-using a large number of references over an extended period of time to write journal articles, theses or books. EndNote can save time and stress when used as a tool to manage references, but a considerable amount of time is required to learn how to use the many features of the software.

Where a relatively small number of references are required for a single assignment, the use of EndNote may not save time, as all data will need to be entered into EndNote and checked. It may be quicker to create the references manually. EndNote can not solve referencing problems for students who are not sure how to reference. If information is not added correctly to the fields in EndNote,as required by the software, the reference will not automatically correct itself.

Further information can be obtained from the EndNote Library Guide.
