You can search the Library Catalog with EndNote using a connection file. This has the advantage of directly downloading your results into EndNote, which eliminates the need to import your citations as a separate step. As an added bonus, EndNote downloads Library Location information, call numbers, and circulation status. It also displays diacritics correctly. Save the file in your Connections folder.
Questions about connection files for the Dartmouth Library Catalog should be directed to William Fontaine in Baker/Berry Library.

You also have the option of importing records that you've saved from the Catalog into EndNote.
At this time, Library locations, call numbers, and circulation status information cannot be imported. If having this information in your EndNote database is important, use the Catalog Connection File (see above).
There are two ways to import records from the Catalog into EndNote: (1) MARC format, and (2) EndNote format.
The MARC format is recommended because it is much better at putting the various data elements from the catalog record into the proper fields of your EndNote database. This minimizes the amount of editing you'll need to do in order to get your citations to display properly. In addition, the MARC format includes full diacritics, while the EndNote format does not. This can be important if you will be citing materials in languages such as Spanish or French.

The Library Catalog also allows you to export your citations in "EndNote" format to "E-Mail" or "Local Disk." When you import these saved files into EndNote, you'll need set the "Import Options" pop-up menu to "Refer/BiblX". Please note that this is not the recommended option for importing records from the Library Catalog into EndNote. It does not handle diacritics well, and your EndNote database will require extensive editing in order for the citations to format properly.Back to Top
