You can do this from a database or other resource. Many databases and online resources offer an option to export references directly into EndNote, or an option to save to a general citation manager. Either option will work.
You can use EndNote itself to search library catalogs. In the Online Search mode, you can find a list of these catalogs by clicking more in the Library pane of the EndNote window.
You can do this by using the New Reference button. This option is especially good for nontraditional information sources like email or interviews.
You can do this by saving a reference to your computer desktop as a text file, and then importing it into your account by using the Import option under the File drop-down menu.
Exporting citations directly from a library database or journal publisher's website will give you the most complete and accurate citations. Look for "citation," "export," or "cite this" buttons on the database or article page. The most commonly used file type for citation managers such as EndNote is .RIS
You can import multiple references from RIS files or other citation management software into a Endnote account.
Adding the Capture web plug-in can replace this process. This will allow you to import citations directly from a variety of databases. For Capture to work best, you must be in a Capture compatible resource and at the individual item level (not in a list of citations).
To find the full text articles of citations in your EndNote x8 library, you can use the "Find Full Text" tool by following these steps:
Now you've authenticated yourself as an affiliate of the University, so when you search for full text it will search the licensed content available from the University Library System's databases. To have EndNote search for PDF full text, follow these steps:
Note: The "Find Full Text" tool does not work in all cases. If the full text cannot be retrieved within EndNote, you may still be able to locate the full text via searching the library's databases.
