EndNote: Adding References from Google

How to use EndNote software to save, manage, and print citation information within your papers.

Importing from Databases into EndNote

Google usually does not provide direct access to references. You can use the Find it at CSHL button which will link you to a variety of sources within and outside of CSHL.  Other Google links may bring you to the publisher or to a database such as the databases in this section of the LibGuide which you can access to find directions for uploading into EndNote . When in doubt, try to find a link to the actual publisher.  The publisher's web site usually provides a link labeled something like Download Citation or Download to Citation Manager. Clicking on this link will bring you to citation manager options such as EndNote and others. IF there is not EndNote option, you can export the file as a RIS file and import it into EndNote

To import a RIS file into EndNote;

  • In the top task bar click on File and select Import from the dropdown and then file
  • In Import File, browse and choose the RIS file you created, click Choose.
  • In Import Option choose Reference Manager (RIS) from the dropdown window.
  • Click Import
