EndNote > Filters & Importation

This guide allows you to learn more on EndNote, a reference management software program.


The Library produced filters for some of the most popular databases, which are available under Databases. These filters are regularly updated.

  • Import filters (last updated January 2017)
    Extract the files from the .zip archive and save them under C:\Program Files\Endnote X9\Filters\

Importing from databases

For importing references from several bibliographic databases available at the Library, follow these procedures, tested in Mozilla Firefox 41.0.

After each import, we strongly recommend that you check the quality of the imported references and make corrections. If you import them from several databases, make sure you eliminate duplicates.
