EndNote Top Tips – How to import pdf’s from a folder saved on your computer

17 June 2016

Do you have a folder of pdf’s you would like to import into EndNote?

EndNote can be set up to import multiple pdf’s from a single folder on your desktop computer.

  • Make sure that all the pdf files you want to import are in one folder (this can include subfolders).
  • From the File menu, select Import then Folder….
  • At the ‘Import Folder’ field click on Browse and select the required folder (If the selected folder includes subfolders containing files you want to import, click the Include files in all subfolders radio button).
  • Click on Import.

EndNote will import the pdf’s and attempt to locate the record information to attach to. The system will alert you to any pdf’s it has been unable to locate a record for. Unfortunately you can’t clip these onto existing records.
