Capture Reference

Capture Reference is a browser bookmarklet that can be used to capture and save 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. If no group is specified, the reference is saved to Unfiled. Some databases, such as Google Scholar™ and PubMed, allow you to capture an entire page of references all at once.

How to Install 

  1. 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. OR 
  2. Edit the bookmark and change the URL to be the javascript listed below:

javascript:var obj=document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];var scripts=obj.getElementsByTagName("SCRIPT");var flag=0;var ENW_HOST="";var httpPort=%27:80%27;var httpsPort=%27:443%27;var protocol=location.protocol;if( protocol.match(/https:/) && (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Trident/7.0") > 0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Trident/8.0") > 0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Edge/") > 0)) {ENW_HOST=%27;}else {var port=protocol.match(/https:/)?httpsPort:httpPort;ENW_HOST=protocol+%27//;}for(i=0;i<scripts.length;i++) {if(scripts[i].src.match(/bookmarklet.js/)) {flag=1;break;}}if(this.disabled == undefined && flag==0) {this.disabled = true;try{var x=document.createElement(%27SCRIPT%27);x.type=%27text/javascript%27;x.src=ENW_HOST+%27/Download/public/bookmarklet.js?%27+(new Date().getTime()/100000);document.getElementsByTagName(%27head%27)[0].appendChild(x);}catch(e){console.log(e);};}this.disabled = undefined;void(0)

Can't See a Bookmarks Toolbar?

  • To turn on the bookmarks toolbar in Chrome, navigate to the top right, click the menu icon (the 3 dots) and select ‘Bookmarks’ and ‘show Bookmarks Bar’. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Shift+B (in Windows) or Command+Shift+B (in macOS).
  • To turn on the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox, click the ‘View’ menu at the top of the screen, go down to Toolbars and select ‘Bookmarks Toolbar’.
  • To turn on the bookmarks bar in Safari, click on the ‘View’ menu in Safari and select ‘Show Favorites Bar’.

For the Capture buttons to work best, you must be in a Capture compatible resource and at the individual item level (not in a list of citations)
