Searching an EndNote Library

At the right end of the toolbar is the Search box. Click on the magnifying glasss icon to open the list and select the field to search. Then enter your search term, then 'enter'.


The library will now display all references with 'bats' in the title.

EndNote also provides a more sophisticated search function. If this is not already displayed, you can access it by dragging down from the top of the reference list. You can also hide the advanced search function by dragging it up from the bottom.

As we have Local Library selected  Local Library icon   this will search the EndNote library.

Type your search term (eg. echolocat) in the first search box. Make sure that the Field box is showing Any Field:

Search box Any Field location selected

Searching an EndNote Library

Click on the Search button.

The results of your search will be displayed below the search box. Note that these include references containing the words echolocating and echolocation.

Assume we wish to find all references by the author Pepperberg that were published after 2007. This means that we wish to find references which have Pepperberg in the Author field, and a number greater than 2007 in the Year field.

First make sure that All References is selected in the groups pane on the left. In the first search box, click on the first arrow to select the Author field, and then type pepperberg as the search term.

At the beginning of the next row, make sure that And is selected as the Boolean operator.

In the box beside it, use the arrow to select the Year field. In the box beside that, use the arrow to select Is greater than. Enter 2007 as the search term. The screen should look like this:

Click on the Search button to see your results. Note: if Pepperberg were a second or third listed author, this search would also locate that reference.
