Using EndNote

If you are new to EndNote or would like to refresh your skills on using EndNote, we suggest you: 

If you are unsure about how to use a particular EndNote function, for example, you would like to know how to share some references with your project fellows, you may book a research consultation to discuss the best option with your liaison librarian.
