EndNote Filter Help for Maine State Databases

Filters allow you to import citations from a database into EndNote. The instructions below work for Maine State Databases (MARVEL).  Follow the steps below to save results and import them into EndNote:

  1. Build a list of 'Saved Items' by using the 'save this item' icon that appears when hovering over a result. 

  2. View your saved items by clicking the 'Saved Items (#)' link on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.

  3. At the top of the window that appears, Export your results to EndNote.

  4. You may be prompted to select a program with which to open the file. Either RIS Default or EndNote should work fine.

  5. If Endnote is not already running, the program will begin, and you will be asked into which library you wish to import the references. You must use an existing EndNote library, which may reside on the local machine, a network drive, usb or zip disk.

  6. Your references should now be available in your Endnote library, and you should be able to review them in the ‘Imported References’ group in your library.
