Capturing bibliographic information from a website

You can save bibliographic information from web pages into Endnote. This is called Capture.
NB This function does not work in Internet Explorer. You need to use Firefox/Google Chrome to use this function.

To do this you need to install the tool on your browser.  In EndNote, choose Downloads Drag the grey Capture Reference icon onto the bookmarks toolbar.  (NB If the bookmark toolbar is not already on screen, right click next to help and choose Bookmarks toolbar).  

Open a new tab and go to the site you would like to add to your EndNote library. Click Capture Reference. A new screen will appear. You may need to enter the details of your EndNote Online account the first time you use the tool.

First check that the reference is correct ie reference type is set to web page, any other details such as author are added as well as the access date.  
When you are happy with the reference click, Save to A confirmation window will appear and the reference will be added to your library. Click Close and you can return to the webpage you were using.
