Center for Research Libraries (CRL) - EndNote Export Instructions

Exporting to EndNote from the Center for Research Libraries database

Before you begin:

Exporting to EndNote from this database will produce a text file that can be manually imported to EndNote, but requires several additional steps. Instructions for importing RIS-formatted text to EndNote can be found here.

Depending on the number of citations you intend to export, it may be more expedient to use 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. Conduct your search.

2. Check the boxes to the left of the articles for which you plan to export citations, then click Save Marked Items, which is located just above the green bar labeled Keyword. Next, click Export Saved Records from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
