    Export citations

    There is a feature in this section that allows exporting of citations to endnote libraries but I am not sure how it works and having given it a go I am still puzzled as to how it works - I want to export to an existing library.

    Where do we go for help?

    Hi Iain,

    I found these instructions on Charles Sturt's website and I hope they'll help:

    Only individual Trove records can be imported into EndNote.

    1.Select a record by clicking on the title
    2.Under the Versions/Editions heading, select the relevant title
    3.Select ‘Cite this’
    4.Select Download = EndNote XML
    5.Select Save
    6.Select location and select Save
    7.Open your EndNote Library
    8.Select File > Import
    9.Click Choose File and locate the file saved in step 6 above
    10.Open as a .txt file
    11.Select:
    Import Option = EndNote generated XML
    Duplicates = Discard duplicates
    Text Translation = No Translation
    12.Click Import
    Records imported from Trove will include a variety of Reference Types for example books, pictures, newspaper articles, maps and music. Some details may need to be edited.

    Cheers,
    Virginia

    Ah HA! That's how you do it.

    apart from the limitation on only one record this is a very useful feature for someone such as myself who used EndNote to store details of their professional and personal library. I often have several books to enter and this will save time in doing it.

    Thanks

    Hi, I have tried to export from Trove into EndNote X4 using these instructions, but with no luck. I save the XML file to the desktop, then go to EndNote import file, import as an EndNote generated XML but nothing happens.
    Any ideas??
    Has anyone else had luck doing this?

    Hi fraubrown

    There is, unfortunately, a bug in the XML for EndNote files currently exported by Trove. We will have a fix for this in the next Trove release, which is expected to be soon.

    A temporary work around for this is to:
    1. Open the XML file in Notepad;
    2. Change all tags to lower case (see box below)
    Code:
     change <XML> to <xml>
    ; or
    3. Delete the code in the box below from the file
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    4. Save the file and import into EndNote.

    Cheers

    This still doesn't work all that well - on World Cat when you do this it opens a window and you have the file ready to be entered into EndNote what cannot this be implemented in Trove? It would make things easier on the odd occasion that a book is listed in Trove but not on WorldCat.

    While you are at it, what about a citation that links to Mendeley as well.
