EndNote Essential Training #2: Importing References

This video demonstrates the process of importing references to EndNote from bibliographic databases, such as PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, the Web of Science, Scopus, CINHAL and Google Scholar. I also demonstrate how to import book references from catalogs such as Yale's Quicksearch and WorldCat, and how to convert a book reference into a book chapter reference. Finally I demonstrate how to "group edit" imported reference to add additional information to them.

EndNote Essential Training #3: Importing References into EndNote from within EndNote

This video demonstrates how to run simple searches directly from within EndNote to locate and import a reference from databases such as PubMed, the Web of Science, Library of Congress catalog, and the Yale University Library catalog. This works best if you need to import known references one by one, especially if you have the unique identifiers of the references, such as PMIDs.

EndNote Essential Training #7: Managing Full-Text PDFs in EndNote

Over the years, EndNote has grown into not only a mature citation management program, but also a full-text PDF management program. This video demonstrates how to automatically download full-text PDFs for references in your EndNote library, how to import existing PDFs into EndNote and automatically find references for the imported PDFs, how to add your institution's OpenURL path to improve the accuracy in finding full text, and how to use other convenience features for PDF handling in EndNote.

Creating Custom Import Filters and Connection Files in EndNote

You can modify the import filters and connections files that ship with EndNote to make it work better for you. This tutorial demonstrates how to do that using the PubMed import filter and connection file as examples. Please note that the examples used in this video only apply to new, empty EndNote libraries, EndNote libraries with an empty journal term list, or EndNote libraries with a clean, full journal term list that ships with EndNote. If you have been managing an EndNote library for a long time, you will need to clean up your existing journal term list before following the examples in the video.
