Export Citations to EndNote Web

When you find an article in a library database that you'd like to add to your citation manager, look for the EXPORT option on the article page. Here's an example of what it looks like in Academic Search Premier. Select "Direct Export to EndNote Web" to save the citation to your EndNote Web account.


Saving Items in SuperSearch

When using SuperSearch to locate books, articles, or videos, you can "favorite" or "pin" results to refer to later. You will need to sign into SuperSearch using your CSU-Pueblo eAccount information, or your "pins" will be erased when you log off your computer. To view your saved results, click on the pin at the top right of your screen.

Database Folders

You also have the option to create accounts within library databases to keep track of search results. These accounts are not linked to your CSU-Pueblo eAccount. If you're using EndNote Web to keep track of your citations, this step is not needed.
