Instructions for exporting citations from BREPOLiS to EndNote
A sample search using BREPOLiS gives an overview of how to export to EndNote from either BREPOLiS or the International Medieval Bibliography.
The first time you use BREPOLiS, you will probably need to install a special filter before you can export citations to EndNote. Instructions follow below in two stages, first for getting and installing the filter, and second for exporting citations.
Depending on the number of citations you intend to export, it may be more expedient to use Google Scholar instead. Here you can type specific article titles and download citations one-at-a-time. Be sure to use Google Scholar while logged into the KU library for wider access. Step-by-step instructions for exporting citations from Google Scholar to EndNote are available here.
Instructions for Installing the Filter
- Before you begin, it will be useful to download and install the BREPOLiS filter if you haven't already. (You can come back to this step later, though, if you prefer). Get the filter here.
- In the pop-up Opening BREPOLiS.enf box, make sure the Open with box is set to EndNote X6 (as below) then click OK. The BREPOLiS filter will work for International Medieval Bibliography too.
- The BREPOLiS filter will open in EndNote. From the main EndNote menu, click File then Save as.
- In the Save as box, remove the word Copy, then click Save.
Instructions for Exporting Citations
- Choose by checking the boxes for which you plan to export citations then click Export from the menu above.
- In the Export menu, choose .txt - Endnote then click Export.
- From the pop-up Choose An Import Filter box, select BREPOLiS then click Choose. The export should complete automatically from this point.
Some browsers may ask you to choose a helper application.
- Check Open with then click Browse.
- This will open a second box (the Choose Helper Application box). Select EndNote.
- Click OK to both boxes when finished.
- You can also check Do this automatically for files like this from now on, to save time in the future.
If citations fail to export, also check for pop-up blockers (which may appear as a banner notice along the top or bottom of your screen). Citation also will not export if you have a reference open in EndNote. (To be sure you do not have a reference open, in EndNote, click on All References.)
