Exporting from an EBSCO database to EndNote

Exporting from an EBSCO database to EndNote


Welcome to UTS Library’s video on exporting
from an EBSCO database to EndNote. Today I’ll be using a Mac running Firefox and I’ll be
exporting to EndNote X7. OK I’ll begin with a search… here are our results there’s more
than one way to export articles to EndNote from here but I’m going to assume you’ll want
to export more than one article at a time and show you the most efficient method for
doing that. To select your articles press the ‘add to folder’ button which is seen here.
I’ll select the first three. Once you’ve finished selecting your articles select the folder
view button over here on the right. Inside your folder view you’ll be able to tick the
articles and choose export like this. You could press select all as well. The export
button is over here on the right hand side. The next step will be EBSCO asking you which
software you’re using, and if you’re using EndNote desktop you’ll be choosing this top
option here. Once you’ve done that press save. EBSCO will then ask you which software you
are using, choose EndNote and then press ok. I’ll show you how to do that. Click the open
with button, press choose and then select EndNote from the list. This is how it looks
in my configuration which is Mac and Firefox, depending on your setup it may look a little
bit different at this step or this step may be omitted completely. One thing to keep in
mind is that you can check this ‘Do this automatically for files like this from now on’ button once
you’ve enabled this mode you shouldn’t have to go through this step again when exporting.
When you’re all done press ok and your references should appear. It’s a good idea to have a
look at the preview of an article from time to time just to see if everything looks correct,
occasionally you might see something that you need to edit from the original export
very slightly. So in this case here it says in the reference that it goes from page 26-26
and this makes an unusual looking reference in Harvard so what I would want to do to make
the reference look exactly right is just remove the 26-26 aspect of it because it makes the
pagination look odd in the reference.. and then we’ll shut that and save. And now you
can see that this reference look nice at least according to the Harvard UTS style that I’m
using. That concludes this video, if you have any questions why not use the comments box
below or use our Ask-A-Librarian page seen here on the homepage of UTS Library. Thanks
for watching!
