There are a few new features available in PubMed this week. There is now an option within a single citation abstract view to add items to favorites. This is similar to the clipboard function, but requires that you are signed in to your NCBI account (which is free and allows you to save searches, create folders and share citations.) This allows you to easily save citations permanently to your collections.
The other recent change is the addition of a menu option to send citations to a citation manager. This works very well for importing citations into Endnote.
Here is a series of screen captures to demonstrate the process for Endnote Import using Microsoft’s IE 9.
Other browsers may perform differently. For example, in Firefox, steps 1 and 2 are the same but the file open prompt is different.
For Refworks Import, instead of opening file, save file instead.
If you have any questions about these features or about how to use any of these tools, please contact your liaison librarian. http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/hardin/liaisons.htm
