Exporting multiple Google Scholar references into Endnote at once

The “My library” feature in Google Scholar can now be used to export multiple references at once. Until recently, references in Google Scholar could only be exported to EndNote one at a time.

To begin, open Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.ca/), and click Connect… (in the upper right corner of the page). Log in with your Google Account. If you do not have an account, you will be prompted to create one. Once logged in, conduct your search. Click the Save link under references that you’re interested in. When you have completed your screening, click on My Library, located on the left. You will find all your saved references.

Next, make sure your EndNote library is open. Select all your references by checking the box at the top (1), click the Export button (2) and select the EndNote (3) option. Depending on your settings, your references will be imported into your library automatically or downloaded (requiring a manual import into Endnote).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your hospital librarian. You can also learn more about EndNote and bibliographic databases by attending one of our upcoming workshops.
