Capture Reference Tool

What is Capture Reference?

Capture Reference is a browser tool that can be used to capture online references from webpages, into EndNote online or EndNote Desktop. Capture Reference scans the bibliographic information presented on a Web page and creates a reference for you to save to a new or existing group. Some databases, such as Google Scholar™ and PubMed, allow you to capture an entire page of references all at once.

How to Install Capture Reference

To Install the Capture Reference tool:

  • Log into EndNote Online.
  • Click on Downloads.
  • Drag the Capture Reference button to your Bookmarks bar (also known as "Favorites Bar" or "Bookmarks Toolbar"). In some browsers, you may need to right-click and select "Add to Favorites" or "Bookmark This Link."
