Importing references from the Library Catalogue

Did you know it is possible to import references from the Library Catalogue into your EndNote Web account? Here's how to do it. It's a two stage process. The first is to save the references from the Library Catalogue, the second is to import them into your EndNote Web account.

Note: You can also search the Library Catalogue from directly within EndNote Web. See the entry on how to Search the Library Catalogue directly for more information.

Stage 1: Saving references from the Library Catalogue

  1. Search the Library Catalogue as normal and mark any items you are interested in by clicking the box to the left of them.
  2. Click on the Save Marked Records button towards the top left of the screen.
  3. Click on the View Saved button.
  4. Click on the Export Saved button.
  5. Under Format of List, choose the option End-Note/RefWorks.
  6. Under Send List To, choose the option Local Disk.
  7. Click the Submit button.
  8. Select Save to Disk, then click OK. Save the file in the normal way.

Stage 2: Importing Catalogue references into EndNote Web

  1. Go to your EndNote Web account. Click on the Collect References tab then select Import References.
  2. Next to File, click the Browse button and select the file you have just saved.
  3. Under Filter select the option EndNote Import.
  4. Under To select the group you want to send your references to.
  5. Click the Import button. The references will be sent to your selected group.

Using EndNote with other word processors

Although the Cite While You Write plug-in only works with Microsoft Word, it is still possible to format your bibliography using a different word processor, such as Open Office.  To do this:

  1. Create your document as normal.
  2. When you wish to insert a reference, type {author's second name, Year} e.g. {Beardwell, 2007}.
  3. Save your document as a Rich Text Format (.RTF) file.
  4. Log in to EndNote Web and click the Format Tab and select Format Paper.
  5. Click on the Browse button and select the file you saved in step 3.
  6. Under Bibliographic Style, select the referencing style required (e.g. Harvard).
  7. Click the Format  button.
  8. You will then be given the option to either view or save your formatted document

Adding notes to your references

Using EndNote Web, it is possible to annotate any reference you have added. Occasionally, people ask whether they should use the Notes box or the Research Notes box.

To some extent, it doesn't actually matter. However, some databases use the Notes box to add additional information to the reference. For that reason, you might be better off using the Research Notes field - otherwise your annotations might get mixed up with annotations imported from a database.
