Manually adding citations to EndNote Web - EndNote Export Instructions

How to manually add citations from databases that do not export to EndNote Web:

For databases that do not currently transport citation information to EndNote Web, you can manually add any items you wish to include in your EndNote library.

It may also be possible to find the articles you need in Google Scholar instead. Here you can type specific article titles and download citations one-at-a-time. Be sure to use Google Scholar while logged into the KU library for wider access. Step-by-step instructions for exporting citations from Google Scholar to EndNote are available here.

1. Begin by hovering over the Collect tab in your EndNote Web library then click New Reference.
