I’ve been using EndnoteX.0.2 to download references from PubMed, via Endnote’s
Connect Tool. I’d like to do the same for references in INSPEC. I just tried to
(EndNote) Connect to Web of Science but this caused EndNote to crash.
Is there a different way I should access Web of Science?
I’d also like to download mathematical references — should I try using MathSciNet ?

Hi Peter,

I’m the one who followed up with the question you sent to our Ask-A-Librarian service. I emailed you some information earlier about using EndNote with INSPEC and MathSciNet.

INSPEC: search in the new ISI interface, mark citations and save them to EndNote and deposit in the library of your choice.
MathSciNet: search in MathSciNet, mark citations and save as a text file. Then open EndNote and import the text file using the EndNote import filter.
