Import filters

Saving and importing records is one method of transferring records from databases into EndNote. With the Import Filter method, database records are saved as text files and then imported into EndNote via an appropriate Import Filter. Check EndNote.com for the latest Import Filters.

An Endnote Import Filter tells EndNote how to interpret information in records downloaded or saved from a citation database. Databases usually provide a function to save records as a text file. Filters act as translators so the information can be imported into an EndNote libary. Each database has its own way to organize data, so there needs to be a different filter for each database.

Many filters are provided as part of the EndNote software installation and are stored in the Filters folder of the EndNote program.

New filters created by EndNote developers can be downloaded from the EndNote website. Some additional filters are available from the table below . Filters are not available for all databases.

Note that references imported from databases might need editing.

See the University of Melbourne's Downloading References from Library Databases guide for database specific steps.

Connection files

The Online Search command in EndNote lets you connect directly to freely available search engines, search them from within EndNote, and bring references straight into your library. To do this you must have an active internet connection.

The Online Search feature uses small Connection files for instructions on how to connect and deal with the data encountered. Many are provided as part of the EndNote software installation and are stored in the Connections folder of your EndNote program.

Connection files can be downloaded from the EndNote website. Some additional connect files are available from the table below, including a file for the University of Melbourne library catalogue.

References downloaded from databases might require editing.

To browse and activate connection files from within your EndNote library:

Resource Connection file Notes
University of Melbourne Library catalogue Download EndNote provides a University of Melbourne Library Catalogue connection file. In some instances, this file connects to the CARM Centre catalogue instead of the University of Melbourne Library catalogue. If results from searches of the connection file regularly do not locate known library items, then this connection file can be used to replace the faulty U Melbourne.enz file in the EndNote Connnections folder.
