     then go to top right hand of screen, click on the pin (Go to My Favourites), click the "select all" box and then click on the 3 dots (...) next to the pin ("push to") select EndNote.

Checking references exported into EndNote
1. References exported into EndNote are held in a folder called Imported References. This gives you an opportunity to view it in isolation from the rest of your Library. This is a good time to double-click the reference which will open the Reference window, and you can check and edit the fields.
2. Check and make sure all of the citation details are entered in the correct boxes, and that the Edition field contains the correct information if applicable. Ebooks may get set as Book or a Book may be classed as Generic. Click the dropdown menu and choose the appropriate reference type..
3. Once you have finished editing the reference, choose Save, then close editing by clicking the X in the top right. Then to view your entire library, click “All References” at the top left.
