WIT Libraries is delighted to hear that our interactive online EndNote tutorial has been added to PRIMO: the Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online database.

PRIMO is an American Library Association (ALA) / Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) initiative, that “promotes and shares peer-reviewed instructional materials created by librarians to teach people about discovering, accessing and evaluating information in networked environment”. You can access PRIMO and browse the range of online tutorials and instructional materials by linking the PRIMO logo below.


If you haven’t checked out our EndNote tutorial yet, you can access it below. The tutorial is designed to bring users through the stages of creating and managing an EndNote library, importing, saving and managing references, and creating Bibliographies and using Cite While You Write. The Online tutorial is jammed with video tutorials and screen-casts, as well as interactive diagrams. You’ll also find an e-copy of WIT Libraries Getting Started with EndNote publication. The WIT Libraries online EndNote tutorial is an ideal support tool for researchers and post-grad students to help them manage their references and citations.
