When to Use: Follow these steps when you want to create a bibliography that is not associated with a paper. The bibliography created with the following steps will be created independently of any paper. It will be based on references you select from your EndNote Library.
Note: There are two main ways to create bibliographies that will be explained below. Read through each method and decide which one is appropriate for your needs. Please see the EndNote Manual for even more ways to create bibliographies.
Drag and Drop Method: (selected parts copied from EndNote Manual)
1. Open Endnote and the library you want to export references from.
2. Under Edit menu, select Output Styles, and select the style you want your bibliography to be in. If you do not see your preferred method, select Open Style Manager and check the boxes next to the styles you want to see. After you have done this, choose the style you want to do.
3. Open your word processor.
4. Hold down the CTRL key as you drag the references from the library and drop them directly onto a word processing document in the background.
5. If your word processor does not support drag-and-drop, go to the EndNote Manual, Chapter 13, section “Copy Formatted” for help.
6. Name and save the file as normal for your word processor.
Exporting References Method: (copied from EndNote Manual)
1. Open the library from which you will export, and show the references you want to export.
2. (Optional) References are exported in the order specified by the selected output style. If you want to change the sort order, you must modify the output style:
2. From EndNote’s File menu, choose Export.
3. From the Save as Type list at the bottom of the dialog, select the type of file to be exported: Text File, Rich Text Format, HTML, or XML.
4. From the Output style list at the bottom of the dialog, choose a style (or choose Select another style to choose from all available output styles).
5. Select the Export Selected References option if desired. If you want to export all of the references in the current list, clear the check box.
6. Name your file.
7. Use the Save in option to select the folder on your computer where it should be saved.
8. Click Save. (It is best to keep the assigned file extensions as part of the exported file name.)
9. Open the exported file in a word processor to edit or print it.
Note: For more information on other ways to create bibliographies, preview them, print them directly from Endnote, or how to create other bibliographic styles (afor example: annotated) see the EndNote Manual, Chapter 13.
