EndNote Citation Software

Getting Citations

We recommend downloading your citations directly from databases to save to your EndNote Library. All our databases, catalogs, and journal subscriptions allow exporting citations. Here is a guide to help you with each of our resources.

Exporting and Importing Citations for EndNote from Databases at UMass Lowell

How you export your references may vary by database. See the table below for general guidance on how to download your citations from some resources available at UML. Once you've downloaded your citations, follow the instructions for importing them into EndNote. Import options will be dependent on the way each database exports citations for you.
