What is Bibliographic Software?
Bibliographic software allows you to build a personal database of references, to insert citations as you write a Word document, and to create a bibliography or reference list quickly and easily.

The University of Surrey has site licences for three bibliographic software packages. If you are not sure which product to use, please contact your Academic Liaison Librarian
RefWorks is a web-based product, does not require you to obtain software and can be accessed remotely. To log in click on the arrow next to My Institution's Credentials (Shibboleth) and select University of Surrey from the drop down list.

How Do I Obtain Endnote or Reference Manager?
The licences allow you to install the software on any computer or laptop owned by the University of Surrey. Check with your Faculty IT Manager before doing so. Contact the User Support Desk in the Austin Pearce building. You will be asked to complete a form confirming that you will abide by the site licence agreement and only use the software on a computer or laptop owned by the University of Surrey.
To use the software on a computer or laptop not owned by the University of Surrey you need to purchase a personal licence. Go to Adept Scientific, and login with your University username and password to buy it at a reduced price.
