Endnote: Online Search within EndNote


Online Search provides the opportunity to search for references within EndNote program and added directly to the EndNote Library. Comes with EndNote program, there are four databases under Online Search: 

  1. Library of Congress: the biggest library catalog in the world. 
  2. LISA (EBSCO): Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts
  3. PubMed (NLM): the premier biomedical database from the National Library of Medicine
  4. Web of Science (TS): a citation database

You can not add other SBU research databases to the Online Search list. Instead you can use either exporting feature of databases or importing feature of EndNote to add references to the EndNote Library. 

It's highly recommended to use Online Search only for known references. For example, you know the author, the article, or PMID. It is not recommended to start your topic search using EndNote Online Search feature. 

To do the EndNote Online Search: click the database, make sure you use the correct search field, and conduct the search.
