Using the Quick List to create a selective bibliography

It's possible to create a select stand-alone bibliography using just some references from your EndNote Web account, without having to format them in a Word document. Here's how to do it:

  1. From an individual Group (or folder), select the references you want to use by ticking them.
  2. Once you've chosen the references you want from that folder, click on the Copy to Quick List button.
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 for any other folders you want to use references from.
  4. When you've selected all the required references, click on the Format tab.
  5. From the References drop-down menu, select Quick List.
  6. Under the Bibliographic Style drop-down menu, select the required format for your references (e.g. Harvard, Vancouver).
  7. Under File Format, select RTF (Rich Text File).
  8. Click on either the Save, Email or Print button, depending what you want to do with your list.
