Use the ISBN number to create a new reference

Hello,

 

I would like to know if it's possible to enter the ISBN number of a book and then get all the information of the book. I could not find where I can put this number.

Thanks in advance

Re: Use the ISBN number to create a new reference

Greetings,

 

You could use EndNote's Library of Congress connection file to query the ISBN's related to the books you'd like to add to your EndNote library.  The following training video touches upon searching remote databases from within EndNote:

Please let me know if this works for you.

Hello,

I tried to do it as you instructed it but it does not work. (Error Message: No matching references found.)

 

Title: Genomics of Chloroplasts and Mitochondria

ISBN-10: 940072919

ISBN:13: 978-9400729193

 

If you search the ISBN numbers on Amazon you get the right book.

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks in advance and best regards

Axel Fischer

Re: Use the ISBN number to create a new reference

I have the exact same issue.  Neither the desktop client nor the web system seem to work.

Hello,

 

I would like to bring up this topic again as I have the same problem. I have a list of books I would like to import (which I can do) but I would like to update and fill in the other information automatically.

 

When doing "Find reference update" it says "all are up to date". Please help, I don't want to add all the information by hand.

 

 

Edit: Using EndNote X8

 

Thanks,

Roxane

Greetings Roxane,

 

I would recommend either searching EndNote's Library of Congress connection file, mentioned above, or searching Google Scholar from a web browser, then direct exporting references to your EndNote library:

Re: Use the ISBN number to create a new reference

Hi Jimmy,

 

importing from Google Books etc is working fine. I ws just hoping to find a way that EndNote will update the information based on the ISBN imported from an excel sheet.

Until then I will use the saved import file,

 

Thanks.
