EndNote X9


SuperSearch is a single unified search interface which accesses the overwhelming majority of material the ANU Library subscribes to. It allows searches across thousands of journals, newspaper articles, books, book chapters and reviews, dissertations, and electronic resources such as websites and free online journals. It also conveniently links to full text articles.

The following steps can be used to automatically add records (references) from your search results to your EndNote library. SuperSearch automatically does the translation of reference information into an EndNote compatible format, noting that the Imported References group always displays all references from your last import only.

Tip: Use the SuperSearch help options on the ANU Library website for support.


Type australia* literat* into the SuperSearch search field and select Go.

This search automatically inserts a Boolean AND operator between the words. The truncation/word stemming
asterisk (*) includes relevant variant word endings in the search results, including plural and singular; for example australia, australia’s, australian. For more information on searching visit the Library's Topic Analysis how to guide.

Direct importing of search results into an EndNote library is supported.

  1. To the right of every record in the search results list, select the folder (with + sign). This action will save the record to a Saved Items list.
  2. Repeat this process as often as required, selecting all the records you wish to import.
  3. When finished selecting records, select the Saved Items folder on the SuperSearch banner, towards the top of the screen. 
  4. Above the Saved Items list, select EndNote from the Export As drop-down list. A dialog box will open. With the Open with option selected, and the required EndNote library open, select OK. This action imports the saved records into EndNote.
  5. Select some of the newly imported references and click on the Reference Tab of the Tabs Panel to ensure that the information has been transferred correctly.

Note: There will be slight variations of the above steps with different web browsers, especially step 4.
