You can search a number of online resources from within EndNote X9. Searching online databases via EndNote is a good way to get specific references into your library quickly.
In the My Library pane, you might already have some resources such as PubMed or Web of Science saved in the group set Online Search. You will only see Online Search, with a list of online resources, if you are viewing your library in Online Search or Integrated mode. Find out more about library modes.
If the resource you wish to search is displayed, click on it.
To see other resources to search, click on more… at the bottom of your Online Search group. Alternatively go to the Tools menu and select Online Search to select from a list of databases/catalogues.
If you are in Integrated Library & Online Search Mode, your results will be added directly to your library. They will appear in both All References and the appropriate online search group.
