Each database or library catalog is a little bit different but to begin the process is the same:

Place the connection file in the Connection Folder: C:\Program Files\EndNote Xversion\Connections

1. In EndNote go to Tools -> Online Search

2. When the dialog box opens up Choose a database or catalog.

Library Catalogs

Other schools allow you to search their catalog for free. Try the Library of Congress!

Searching Outside Databases

One great EndNote feature is to search databases from inside your EndNote library and add resources without typing. Database searching is limited to freely available or databases that Luther Seminary subscribes to. A partial list follows.

Connection files are available for selected EBSCO databases ( see attachments at bottom of page) .
- ATLA Religion Database and ATLASerials
- Academic Search Premier
- Catholic Periodical & Literature Index
- Family & Society Studies Worldwide
- New Testament Abstracts
- Old Testament Abstracts

Exporting Citations From Databases

Some databases require that you search --> then export the citations you are interested in --> then import them into EndNote using the correct filter.
  • ERIC (the US Government's Education Resources Information Center) [when exporting, use the RIS option, check your desktop for the file (e.g., yourfile.ris), then import yourfile.ris into EndNote]
