EndNote Online

What is EndNote Online?

EndNote Online is a reference management package that stores and organises bibliographic references and then lets you effortlessly cite these references in Word, whilst automatically creating a bibliography.

It is particularly suitable for undergraduates and taught postgraduates, though it can also be used in conjunction with EndNote Desktop for research students and academics. You may find EndNote Online referred to as Endnote Web or Endnote Basic, they all refer to the same product.


Library Services run short lunchtime sessions in Teaching Blocks 1&2. These are advertised on our Library events page and on digital screens around campus

No need to book, just turn up.

Signing up for EndNote Online

Using a University PC or working through the MyBristol portal, search for the ‘Web of Science’ from the Library’s Recommended Databases. Register by clicking on the EndNote tab within the database. Register with your UoB email address. This will give you the full functionality available.

Once registered you can login to the service direct from www.myendnoteweb.com and begin saving new references into your account. Roaming access will allow you to use it from any computer, but you must login via a University computer, or via the Web of Science, at least once every 12 months to authenticate your status as a University of Bristol student or staff member.
