Zayed University supports the use of ENDNOTE, which can create a personalized database of references. It is a complex and powerful software recommended for faculty undertaking extensive study or research. References can be typed in, imported from databases or catalogs, or converted from Word documents. Bibliographies can then be created from an EndNote 'library' to suit any thesis, research paper or assignment in any citation style you require.

For more detailed information about EndNote software, check the following page from the EndNote web site:

Obtaining and installing EndNote:

Log a request at the ZU CSD Service Desk ( to find out how to download a copy of the EndNote X1 software. You may either be upgrading from the currently supported EndNote 9, or require a new installation. In either case, the library will maintain a record of EndNote users to promote training opportunities, new resources, and to share our knowledge as a 'community of users'. Check the 'Tips for installation and conflict problems' linked here if you have any problems installing EndNote X1. EndNote X1 is now compatible with MS Word 2007, and with Adobe Contribute, or Flashpaper.
