Export References from Library Search
Export References from Google Scholar
Google Scholar is a popular research literature search engine. The University Library collection can be accessed directly when searching Google Scholar via the University proxy. Searching this way will enable you to authenticate as a University of Sydney student or staff member and access full-text and/or Library holdings directly from your Google Scholar search results. To activate this feature, search Google Scholar via the Library Databases list.
Not every database supports direct exporting - to get references into your Endnote Library, you will need to save the results as a text file, and manually import them into your library.
1. Select File, then Import from the Endnote toolbar
2. This will bring up an Import dialog box. Click Choose File... and browse to the downloaded file with the results to be imported.
Under Import Option select the appropriate filter. If the filter you need is not listed, select the Other Filters... option and browse for the database you are importing from. These entries can also have information about how to import or other factors to be aware of when using the filter.
Leave the Duplicates and Text Translation menus as they are, press Import, and the records will be in your library.
3. What if the filter you need has to be downloaded from another website? The safest and easiest way to do this is to follow these steps.
Author, title, year of publication, publisher, place of publication. If the book has several publishers, choose the first one. The also applies to place of publication. If a book has several editions, you need to write which one you are using, for example 2nd, 4th and so forth
Title and author of the article, journal name, volume, issue and page numbers.
Title and author, year of publication, web address (URL), retrieval date and the latest update date.
You can use groups to sort references by subject or study field. Groups make it easier to keep track of your library’s references. A reference may be linked to several groups. Even though a reference is linked to a group, you will still find it in All References.
The left pane of the Library window lists all the Groups in the current Library
Group name from the list OR Highlight references you wish to add to the Group in the main window.
Drag and Drop the selected references onto the group in which you wish to place them.
Create from Groups
The Find Duplicates window highlights fields that contain non-matching text so you can quickly compare the records and remove duplicate references from your Library. This feature should ideally be used immediately after exporting new references to your Library, to avoid unnecessary complications when you use the Cite While You Write functions in Word.
