EndNote and the library catalogue

Posted by Megan on May 11, 2010

EndNote users: I plan to write a series of posts on with some tips for working with EndNote version X3 and the library catalogue.

First off, citations can be directly exported from WorldCat Local. From the full record for an item, click on the icon labeled “Cite/Export” and then choose “Export to EndNote.” The citation should be directly transferred to your open EndNote library (if prompted, choose the option to OPEN the file).

You can export more than one reference at once by creating lists in WorldCat. This requires that you first sign up for a WorldCat account. To do this, click on WorldCat sign in in the upper right corner of any page and then click on create a free account. (Click here for more information about WorldCat accounts.) You can add items to your lists from the full record. To export a list of references to EndNote, go to the WorldCat link on the right side of the page and choose “My Lists.” Click on the list name to view it, then choose the “Citations View” tab to export the references to EndNote.

Click on the video below to see a demonstration of creating a list in WorldCat and exporting it to EndNote.
