Export references

You can keep details of items from the Library Catalogue by downloading them or emailing them to yourself. This is called exporting references.

  • Carry out your search
  • From your search results, mark the items you wish to keep by clicking on the check box next to each item
  • Choose the "Save Marked Records" button before moving onto a new page. You can continue to add items from other searches
  • To export the references, click the "View Saved" button
  • On the next screen, click next to "End-Note/RefWorks", then next to "Local Disk" on the right of the screen.  
  • Click on Submit.  You will be prompted to save the resulting text file to your local drive (for example your M:).
