You can add references to a library in three ways:
Note: Importing the reference data from Databases is the easiest way to create a reference
The most efficient way to get references from databases for uploading into EndNote is by setting up alerts in each database. My libguide Creating Publication Alerts will bring you through setting up alerts in Scopus, PubMed, ScienceDirect and Web of Science.
Please choose the Database from the dropdown menu under the Adding references to a Library tab above to see directions for searching and uploading references from that database
These directions are similar for both Microsoft and MAC OS. While working in and open EndNote® library you can search external databases then save selected references directly into your library
Endnote supports connections to 2800+ databases and library catalogs
Connect directly to PubMed and Web of Science from your EndNote® library
The database should appear in My Groups under Online Search
Shortcut: You can also also add connection files by clicking on more under Online Search
Confirm Online Search
Create or open an EndNote® library
From the Reference Menu on the toolbar click New Reference
The default Reference Type is Journal Article. Use the dropdown menu at the top to select other reference types such as Book Section as appropriate
Enter information into the desired fields
Close the reference by clicking X at top right or Close Reference in the File dropdown menu. The reference will automatically be saved.
