EndNote 20 Guide

Exporting from Library Search

Exporting references from Murdoch Library Search

On the Library Search results page, you can either add individual references or add a group of references.

To add a single reference:

To add a group of references:

  •  Click the checkbox icon  to save a reference to the Saved Items folder, select the to view Saved items.
  • Open the Saved Items folder and select Export RIS from the horizontal menu.

In either case, a RIS file will be downloaded.

To complete the import:

  • Open the RIS file. This will automatically import the reference(s) into EndNote
  • Check that all the data in each reference is correct
  • Remember to save if you make any changes.

Your references will appear in the Imported References group.

This is only a temporary holding place and as soon as you either import more references or close EndNote program, the references will disappear. Imported references will always be available under All References.

Note: This is the best time to check your references for errors, as it is easier than searching for them later.
