There are three parts to this section:
Most major databases allow direct sending of references into your Endnote desktop library. The typical steps are illustrated in this section.
If you are working on a PC that does not have EndNote desktop installed, you can still send the references to your EndNote Web account.
These are the instructions for major databases and databases that require special instructions (e.g. those that do not support EndNote directly).
The majority of the large-scale databases allow direct sending of references into your Endnote desktop library. Please note that only the references will be sent, even though the database may have the full-text article in HTML or PDF. These are the typical steps:
1. At the database, select the reference that you want by clicking within the check box next to it.
2. Look for Save, output, export, download or send to EndNote. This is sometimes labelled as “RIS format”.
3. Click on Open, when prompted, to transfer the selected records to your EndNote library.
If you're using Internet Explorer, clicking on Open will bring the references into EndNote if it is installed in the PC you are working on.
If you're using Firefox, you may see a pop-up window similar to the one below:
Change Open with to ResearchSoft Direct Export Helper (default) or EndNote X (version number), and click on OK.
If you're using Chrome, the file will be downloaded, as can be seen from the bottom left of the browser window.
Double click on the downloaded file and the references will be automatically brought into EndNote.
Do note that the databases may produce different files types, such as .ris or cgi.
Note: If the PC does not have EndNote installed, you can use EndNote Web. Alternatively, save the file type, for example, .ris into your thumbdrive or email it to yourself. When you get to a PC with EndNote installed, just double-click on the files and they will be brought into EndNote. If you are not using EndNote, import the references into EndNote by going to File > Import File, and browse for the file. Change the Import Option to Reference Manager (RIS) if the file type is .ris. If the file type is not .ris, click on Import Option > Other Filters and search by the name of the database.
If you have an EndNote Web account, follow the instructions for Steps 1 & 2 that are given in the above section for EndNote. After that, perform the following steps in EndNote Web:
The instructions below on getting references from selected databases are for Internet Explorer. If you are using Firefox or Chrome, do check out the extra steps involved in Sending References Directly from Databases to EndNote.
Academic Onefile (see Gale)
Currently, you can only export one citation at a time in each .enw document, which has to be imported individually into EndNote (http://portal.acm.org/faq_dl.cfm#14). For batch importing of multiple citations, you can combine multiple .enw documents into a single document (e.g. by using Notepad to copy and paste all citations into one document), making sure that you leave a single empty line in between citations.

These instructions are for EndNote X5 and earlier. Please note that EndNote X6 does not allow sending of references from LINC. If you are using X6, use FindMore@NUSL instead.
Note: The following can only be done using Internet Explorer.
Modern Language Association International Bibliography (see ProQuest)
For FSTA database, select Complete Reference in Step 3 before exporting. When Endnote asks what import filter to use, select any filter for OvidSP (e.g. AARP Ageline (OvidSP)).
In IE browser, you can choose to Open (with ResearchSoft Export Helper) or Save the file. In Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers, you can only download the created file. Then doubleclick on the dowloaded file (with .cgw or .ris). The citations should go into your EN library smoothly.
For EndNote X6 and later:
For EndNote X5 and older:
