What is covered in this section

This section of the EndNote Web libguide covers:

  • Adding a reference from a database into EndNote Web
  • Import filters
  • Samples from selected databases

Note regarding Import Filters:

For some of the library databases, you will need to use a database's import filter.

The import filter specifies the output format and file extenstion that will allow a database article citation to import into EndNote Web. Some of the databases have direct export and so you will not need to use an import filter.  

Select the Excel file below -  EndNote Web Filters -  to see which databases have an import filter as well as the name of the filter.
