This video shows how to transfer references
into EndNote if you use Safari or Edge browsers or if the journal database or website you
are using is not able to export references directly to EndNote.
I am using the Safari browser on an Apple Macbook to transfer references from Library
Search to EndNote. Your computer may have different looking download folders, but the
principle of saving a file and then importing it is the same.
Firstly, Log in to EndNote Online. Leave it open, while you open a new tab in
your browser. On this new tab, go to
the Library website and search Library Search. I am looking for books and articles on research
methods. So I type research methods in the search box. Then Search.
From my list of results, I am going to save some references to my temporary Saved items
folder. Open the temporary folder.
Next to Export To: choose EndNote from the drop down list.
Another tab opens in your browser. It may look to be just a blank page, but if you check
your downloads, a file called something like, export_endnote_1515501929.RIS, has been saved
to your Downloads folder. Now go back to the tab you left open with
EndNote running. Choose Collect
The choose Import References We need to locate the file we just saved from
Library Search containing the references we want to import. Click Choose File,
Then choose Downloads, select the recent file ending .RIS, and click Choose.
Next, select the import option. Choose RefMan RIS.
Finally choose to add the references to either a particular group or to the Unfiled area
in your library. Then click Import.
A confirmation message opens telling you your results were imported to your library.
