Uploading assignments to CUOnline

Remember, before you can submit an assignment which contains EndNote references to CUOnline, you will need to reformat the document. To do this, select the Remove Field Codes icon from the EndNote toolbar in Word. A new copy of your document will be created which you can save and upload to CUOnline.

More detailed instructions can be found in the advanced workbook (task 7) on the Library's EndNote webpages

Accessing EndNote from PCs in the Library

Some PCs in the Library seem to have temporarily lost the EndNote program. Unfortunately there is no way of telling whether EndNote is available on an individual PC until you have logged in and try to access it. IT Services are working on the problem and we hope to have EndNote available on all Library PCs again as soon as possible.

If you use the Cochrane Library in your research then please email me ( and I can send you a copy of the filter for you to download to your own PC so that you can import your references into EndNote.
