Introduction

EndNote online allows you to import references from a number of sources such as Library Search, Google Scholar, bibliographic databases (such as Web of Science), and the web. This allows you to create an EndNote online library of references which is handy for keeping everything you need in one place. You will be able to cite references in Microsoft Word automatically and create a bibliographic list in any referencing style. This will save you considerable time and effort.

Many academic sources such as Library Search and bibliographic databases allow you to export a references as a file. This option may not be available if you want to reference something from the web or social media, but you can still add these references to your Library manually.

In this post we will show you how to add references to your EndNote online Library using a variety of popular information sources and also how to manually add references to your EndNote online Library.

Library Search and most bibliographic databases will allow you to export a reference file with all the metadata stored within it. This allows you to easily import it into your Library. We have made some short videos which will show you how to do this on various platforms:
