Direct Export Tip

There is a difference in using the Save to EndNote button above the list of citations and selecting options from Output Records at the bottom of the results page.

The Save to EndNote button will not include cited references and information from some other fields. Choosing to export references along with citations is good research strategy and can possibly save steps later.  

Important Tip

Web of Science should always be searched from the Library website.
