Importing references from databases into EndNote

Importing is an umbrella term used to describe different methods available for transferring the results of a database search into an EndNote Library, without having to manually type in each record. The most common methods of importing are:

Direct export - Most databases allow you to automatically transfer references from the database into EndNote. Direct export is the simplest and easiest method available.

Import Filters - Some databases do not provide a direct export option. For these databases, you may be able to save references as a text file, then import into EndNote using an import filter.

Endnote provides another feature, called online search, which makes it possible to search library catalogues (such as NEWCAT) directly from your EndNote Library.
