Importing References from EBSCOHost CINAHL

References can be directly exported from EBSCOHost CINAHL to EndNote either individually on in groups.  To export multiple references save the references to the “Folder” EBSCOHost provides for printing/saving/emailing multiple references.  Note, when you log off CINAHL or close the browser window the references in the “Folder” will be deleted.  Click the Add to Folder link at the bottom of each reference or in the details pop-up window to save the reference to the Folder.  To add all the references from a search click the Add link located next to the Sort drop down menu located above and to the right of the list of references. 


To access the references in the Folder use the link on the right hand side of your screen labeled Go to: Folder View.  Either check the checkbox to the left of each reference to select it, or check the Select/Deselect All checkbox to select all the references in the Folder.  Once the appropriate references have been checked click the Export link/icon located above the first reference.  It’s the icon with the arrow pointing to the right.  If you are in the detail view for an individual reference the Export link/icon is also located above and to the right of the reference.  Using the Export link/Icon in the detailed view will export only the reference being viewed.   


On the next screen use the check box labeled Remove these items from folder after saving if you want to delete the references from the Folder after exporting them.  Make sure the Direct Export to EndNote, ProCite, or Reference Manager radio button is selected and click Save.


EndNote will launch automatically if it is not open.  References will be exported to the open EndNote Library, or if no Library is open you will be asked to select the Library you want your references sent to.
