EndNote X9

Create and Populate

Building your EndNote library of source materials is easy, and there are a number of methods you can use:

  • Manual entries require you to enter bibliographic details manually, which combine to create a citation. This can be time-consuming, however it allows you to add greater levels of detail, and finesse your sources, when compared to importing from digital resources.
  • Direct imports allows you to "harvest" citation data from a range of online databases and electronic journals. These include the ANU Library's SuperSearch and full text e-journals, as well as resources such as Google Scholar.
  • PDF imports allow you to create citations using the bibliographic metadata embedded within a PDF. Most commonly, you'll employ this method to quickly and simply create citations from full text journal articles.
