Reference Management

You can save a lot of time by using a reference management tool. When you first have placed a reference in your reference library, it is easily placed in articles or power points, and the list of references is generated automatically. References are downloaded from research- and library databases or created manually by the user.

Employees and students at SDU have access to the program Endnote in desktop version. Employees can install on their SDU computer via the Software Center. You can follow one of these guides:

If you need an Endnote course, you can register one of the University library Endnote courses. If you need to know more about Endnote here and now, you can dig into the official Endnote guide.

There are other reference management tools, e.g. Zotero og Mendeley, whose basic versions you can download the for free from the Internet. The University Library can only offer general support for these two tools.
To ask for specific reference or Endnote courses - or just get more information, please write to endnote@bib.sdu.dk.
