Q. How do I transfer my references from word to endnote web?

I have started using the inbuilt referencing feature in word, but I want to start using endnote basic instead so that I can jump from one PC to another and keep my references with me, how do I do it?


  • Register and login to Endnote Web using this link: endnote You will be asked to authenticate with your campus login details. The ensures that the ITS Harvard style will then be available to you in word. 
  • Install the Cite While You Write™ Plug-In if using your own pc or laptop. It can be found under the Downloads tab in Endnote Web. 
  • Open word and click on the Endnote Tab
  • Sign in using your Endnote login details
  • Click on the export to Endnote Web dropdown link
  • click Export Word Citations (exports all references from the current document)
  • If you click export Word Master List it exports all references from all documents you have references in.
  • Please let us know if this works differently for you, or if you have any problems by emailing library@itsligo.ie thanks, or add a comment.
