Checking for duplicate records Backing up your library
The default setting for most output styles in EndNote is to create a complete bibliography at the end of each document. However, with some output styles you have the options of creating a bibliography for each section or a bibliography for each section with a complete bibliography at the end of the document.
Changing the bibliography setting for your output style
To change the bibliography setting of the style you are using, go to Edit, select Output Styles and then click on Edit "Style" (where "Style" is the name of the Output Style you are using, e.g. Author-Date). Click on the Sections option on the left pane and select the desired settings for your style and then save.
NOTE: Not all output styles will have all options of bibliographies available to them.
Now, in your Microsoft word document, to get the chapter bibliographies to appear, you need to make sure you have the document broken up into sections (or chapters). Go to the Insert menu OR Page Layout tab, click on Breaks and then choose the most relevant option.
Producing a Bibliography or Reading List (without Word)
You can use EndNote to produce bibliographies. This is how you use the references in your library to generate a reading list for students, or a list of references for a colleague, or perhaps a list of your own publications for your CV.
Make sure that you have your preferred output style selected. While holding down the Command key, select a number of references from your library. Click on References on the top menu bar and then click on Show Selected References. You should now be able to see only those references which you selected.
To generate a bibliography from these references using the style that you have selected, click on File and then Export.
You will now see a dialogue box. Save the exported references to a convenient folder. In the Save file as type box, click on the arrow to select Rich Text Format. In the Output Style box, make sure that your chosen style is selected:
Categorise References in Bibliography
To produce a bibliography with different categories such as Primary Sources and Secondary Sources.
- While in your Word doc, open the EndNote menu from the Tools menu, then select Configure Categories
- This will open a dialogue box listing the references currently in your document
- In the left panel are predefined categories of Primary Sources and Secondary Sources (click on the heading to rename if required)
- Select Category Headings (near the top) to add more categories
- Select Uncategorised References to display that list
- Drag the references to the appropriate Category Heading
- Click OK
