EndNote & discoverE

The library's search tool, discoverE, works with EndNote in three different ways.‚Äč

  1. Export items from discoverE as an RIS file and import them into either desktop EndNote or EndNote Web.
  2. You can export items from discoverE and import them into EndNote Web.
  3. You can use the EndNote connection file for the library catalog (see box at bottom of this page).

ALWAYS CHECK THE REFERENCES IMPORTED INTO ENDNOTE. Data clean-up is usually required.
