Getting Started with EndNote

Welcome to the LibGuide for the School of Biological Sciences. 

This guide is designed to help you find and use the library resources most useful for your subject or research. As your Subject Librarian, I am available to provide:

  • advice on searching for and locating library resources.
  • training on using specific databases relevant to biological sciences.
  • assistance in building a literature search.
  • support with using EndNote reference management software.

Please use the tabs above to navigate this LibGuide.  If you have any questions at all, please get in touch.  I can meet via Microsoft Teams if you have any questions or need assistance in getting started with Library resources.

Although I am based at the Agri-Food Biosciences Library on Newforge Lane, I am more than happy to visit all Queen's University sites as required.

If you are new to Queen's University Belfast, please take a look at the New Student Guide to the Library at Queen's.
