EndNote Training

EndNote Beyond the Basics sessions are for staff that are familiar with EndNote functionality and are using it regularly.

EndNote drop-in sessions have been introduced to support staff using EndNote with specific problems, & are not training sessions. Drop-in sessions will be held regularly through 2019. Future sessions will be added to Eventbrite.

Staff who have not used EndNote or have only used EndNote in a limited fashion should book into one of the Library's full day courses.
