The EBSCO platform hosts many databases including:

America: History & Life, Atla Religion Database, British Education Index, Child Development & Adolescent Studies, CINAHL, Criminal Justice Abstracts, EconLit, Education Abstracts (H.W. Wilson), Education Source, ERIC, GreenFILE, Historical Abstracts, Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts, MathSciNet, MLA International Bibliography, RILM Abstracts of Music Literature, Business Source Complete, Iter Bibliography etc.


To Export records to EndNote from EBSCO databases:

From your search results select the records you want to export.  You can select one record at a time by clicking on the blue folder icon beside each record:

Alternatively, you can select an entire page of records by clicking on the Share button at the top of the results list:

The blue folder icon will turn yellow when it is selected.

When you have selected one or more records the folder icon at the top of the page will be activated:

Click on this icon to view, select and export records to EndNote.  You should either select all records (using the deselect/select all option), or individual records (by ticking the box beside each record) and then click the Export option.

Clicking Export will open the export options - ensure the Direct Export in RIS Format option is selected and click Save:

An RIS file will be created containing your exported records, depending on your set up you can either open this in your browser or from your Downloads folder.
