Chapter 8:
Importing Reference Data into 
EndNote
Retrieving References Directly from Online Databases
If you have access to a library catalog or bibliographic database that 
supports the Z39.50 protocol, you can use EndNote as a tool to search 
and retrieve references directly from that database into EndNote. You 
do not need to use EndNote's Import command at all; you use the 
Connect command instead. This is by far the easiest way to get data 
into EndNote because it involves no intermediate steps. The direct 
retrieval of references is not covered in this chapter. See page 67 for 
information.
If you have access to an online bibliographic database, a university 
catalog, or a bibliographic database on CD ROM, you can probably use 
EndNote's import filters to import text files saved or downloaded from 
these sources. EndNote filters are configurable so they give you the 
flexibility to import the reference data you need, and eliminate data you 
do not need. 
There are two main things you need to know in order to correctly 
import downloaded references into EndNote:
  
How to download the data in the right output format.
  
Which import filter to use to import the data into EndNote.
This section describes these two items. The table on page 80 
summarizes a number of common sources of bibliographic data, the 
instructions for downloading tagged files, and the EndNote import 
option to use to import the references into EndNote.
