In April 2012, PubMed released a new feature–a “Citation manager” option in the Send to menu. The video below is a new tutorial reflecting that change.
If you are comfortable with the old way of importing PubMed citations into EndNote, be reassured it still works the same.
There are two ways to select the results for downloading. If you plan to do multiple searches on the topic, sending your selections to Clipboard as you search is the most efficient.
Once you have selected the items you wish to keep, you can Send them to Clipboard, and continue searching and gathering. To view what has been selected, and export to Endnote, select the Clipboard tab, and follow the instructions.
If only one search is needed, follow the instructions as given.
1. Once you have selected your citations, the pull down menus at the top of the Search page or from Clipboard
- Select “Citation manager” from the “Send to” option
- Click on Create File
- Click on the Save button
- Enter a file name when prompted. The default is citations.nbib.
- Note: the file extension type must be “.nbib”–do not change the default type.
- Save it to a location where you can find it.
2. In EndNote
- Open an EndNote library
- From the File pull-down menu, select “Import”
- Select your file
- Select PubMed (NLM) for the Import option
(If you don’t see it on the list, Choose Other Filters, and locate)

The Library website default view of databases and e-journals can be customized using the My Library Homepage application. Do you have favorite databases or e-journals that you access from the Mayo Library web site? Would you prefer to see your favorite databases and e-journals rather than the default view selected by the Library? You can do that by creating your own library home page, and customizing it with your favorite resources. Watch this short video to learn how you can customize your library page:
OvidSP has several new features designed to help researchers organize their information. These tools include annotations, a “My Projects” area to store collections of citations, and an OvidSP toolbar that can be used to capture citations and materials from outside the OvidSP platform and store them in a My Project workspace. The tutorial below is a quick introduction to the My Projects, annotations, and toolbar functionality. (more…)
Most questions that come through Reference are fairly precise: comparison of bare metal stents vs. drug-eluting stents, in terms of restenosis, survival. But, every so often, the question is very wide-ranging, and in an unfamiliar area. (more…)

Keeping track of one’s own publications is hard enough, but finding another researcher’s publications can be even harder, particularly if that author has a common name. (more…)
