CentAUR - How to Import Items

You can import metadata (bibliographic details) into the repository, rather than creating a record from scratch. You will then need to edit the record to complete information about the item ( e.g. add an abstract, specifiy whether it has been peer reviewed, add School and Subject), to upload a full text and to complete the deposit process.

Importing from EndNote

You will need to save the EndNote library to the correct EndNote export text format to enable you to import it

In EndNote

  1. Open your EndNote Library. In Edit, select Output styles and tick 'EndNote export'
  2. In the drop down menu at the top of the screen, select 'EndNote Export' from the list of all output styles.
  3. Select all or some of the records in the EndNote library
  4. Go to File, select Export, and save the records as a .txt file. The records in the .txt file should appear in this format:
    %0 Book
    %A Brooks, G
    %A Humphrey, T
    %D 2005
    %T Cell Cycle Protocols: Methods and Techniques
    %B Methods in Molecular Biology
