How to export my borrowed items list directly into Endnote?

I would like to export my borrowed items list from UTS library directly to my Endnote library. 

I've tried exporting by ticking the "Endnote/Refworks" option and export to local disk- and then tried importing from within Endnote.

BUT the export is just a .txt file & it doesn't seem to import correctly for multiple items in Endnote. 

Can you please explain step by step what to do?

Thanks

Hi Jane & Jackie, 

I've not been able to find a work-around. Perhaps the option of export to endnote should be removed from the My Reading History if it doesn't actually work. 

 

thanks

Hi Nick (& others), 

Nick's suggestion using the INNOPAC file has worked! All references imported nicely into Endnote with minimal fuss.

However, its not perfect as UTS library strangely has authors name in the 'title' section of some books (e.g.

Author Giroux, Henry A.
Title On critical pedagogy / Henry A. Giroux.
Imprint New York : Continuum, c2011.

So Endnote imports this as the title. A bit of cleaning up to do. 

Come on UTS library- lift your game- in 2013 exporting a clean reading history should be easy!

Thanks everyone for attempting to resolve this.

Hi Sarah,

It is possibe to do this, just a little bit fiddly.

1.Click on the "export reading history" link in your reading history.

2. Select the Endnote/Refworks option on the left

3. On the right you need to select the Screen option

4.Click submit

On the page that is displayed you will need to copy all the text displayed and paste it into notepad and save it as a txt file. Save it to you desktop or somewhere easy to locate.

Next go to Endnote

File > Import >

From the box that appears, Choose File and locate the same txt file (most likely named export.txt)

Select INNOPAC as the filter and click on Import

You should see all your reading history in Endnote now!

Let me know if you need further assistance

Hi Nick,

This is great...only on the Endnote X6 i am using there is no INNOPAC filter - the filter list goes from Info-trac to INSPEC (assuming INNOPAC would be between these two options). Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Hi Sarah,

That seems odd as it comes with the standard download. Send me an email and I will send you the INNOPAC filter file, it needs to go in the Endnote > Filters folder. nickolas.zografos@uts.edu.au

Hi Sarah

That sounds very logical that if the option is there that it should work. Unfortunately we haven't been able to export to Endnote from the library catalogue  for some time - but hopefully it will be possible in the future.  Export to RefWorks is possible, but not to Endnote. That is why Jackie provided the answer she did - you can access the library catalogue from within Endnote - which is the only possible way at present.

Hi Jackie, 

Thanks, but this is not what I am looking to do. This requires re-searching my borrowed items. 

Just to make clear

- I have kept my borrowing history accessable via "My borrowing history" within the library log-on

- this list is exportable

- "Export to Endnote" is one of the options available

- I can't seem to get "Export to Endnote" to function correctly. It exports as .txt file, which Endnote is not importing correctly. 

 

Hope that makes it clearer. 

 

Thanks
