RESOLVED: Problems exporting from Library Search to EndNote Web

There is currently a problem with exporting references/citations from Library Search and EBSCOHost databases into EndNote Web (The Client version seems to be unaffected).

When you try to export your list into EndNote, there is the following error message:


The service provider is working to resolve the issue.  In the meantime, you can use the following workaround:

You can export your references as .ris files

  1. When you click on ‘Export’, go with the selected option (Direct Export in RIS format) which will open up a ‘Save’ dialogue box. Save this file somewhere on your own filespace (e.g. your desktop).
  2. Go into EndNote web, click on ‘Collect’ and choose ‘Import References’. On this screen, browse to the file you just saved and select it. You will also need to select ‘Refman RIS’ as your ‘Import Option’ to be on the safe side.

BoB Upgrade Update

During August Box of Broadcasts (BoB) went through a phased upgrade

Logging in for the first time on the new platform – When you first visit the new BoB platform, you will be asked to create an account. You only have to do this once and then you will be remembered for later visits. IMPORTANT: Make sure you register with the same email address that you used on the old BoB platform so that you can easily import your previous clips and playlists.

Clips and playlists functionality – From Wednesday 31 August enhanced clips functionality will be restored. You will be able to make clips from programmes, and you’ll be able to name them and give them a description. Another new feature is the ability to easily re-edit your clips at any time, getting them just the right length for whatever you’re working on. Playlist functionality will also be restored, so you can compile and curate playlists of content from the archive.

Your clips and playlists – From Monday 12 September you’ll be able to import your previous clips and playlists from the old BoB system. The importation process is quick and easy.

Recording limit doubled – The daily recording limit has been upped from five to ten, and making clips will no longer eat into your recording limit. From Wednesday 31 August you’ll be able to make unlimited numbers of clips a day.
