Now on YouTube: EndNote X9 Tutorials (in French)
September 15, 2022

The use of reference management software can seem complex to beginners. This is why the Library created a series of three tutorials to help you learn the basics of EndNote X9. Presented by two of our Reference technicians, these videos are now available on the Library's YouTube channel. We have taken care to add time markers for each point of interest discussed.

Please note that EndNote X9 is freely obtainable to all members of Polytechnique Montréal’s community. Follow the instructions found in the EndNote guide developed by our librarians to complete its installation.

If you have any questions about bibliographic styles, reference management software, or citation practices, please come and see us at the Library or contact us at or by using the Ask a Question function on our website.
