Automatic generation of Endnote web page reference from visited web page

Could you design a bookmarklet or plugin that we could use when visiting a page to pull out the author, title, date etc information and pull it directly into Endnote? It would save a good deal of typing when citing web pages.

 

Take a look at http://www.citethisforme.com/ to see how it might work...

From the Knowledge Base.  You first need to install the add-in to your web browser.

EndNote and EndNote Web: Using the Capture Function to Extract Reference Information from Web Pages

 


You can use the Capture function on the EndNote Web toolbar for Firefox or Internet Explorer to extract reference information from certain webpages, into either EndNote Web or EndNote Desktop.
Before beginning, you will need to create an EndNote Web account and use it to download and install the tools for your browser. Note:Pop-ups must be allowed in your browser for the Capture function to work.
  1. Open a web page displaying the reference information you'd like to extract. A good one to test with is a book on Amazon.com.
  2. If importing into EndNote desktop, please open your EndNote library before proceeding. EndNote Web users may skip this step.
  3. Click the Capture button on the EndNote Web toolbar in your browser.
  4. You will be prompted to log in to EndNote Web.
  5. At the top of the next window, use the radio buttons to select whether you wish to export the information into EndNote or EndNote Web.
  6. Review the information in the form for accuracy and edit it if necessary. If importing into EndNote Web, you can also select which groups you'd like the reference to be imported into, if any.
  7. Click Save To when finished.
  8. If importing into EndNote Web, you are done. Log in to EndNote Web to confirm import. If using EndNote desktop, please choose Open. The reference should then import into your currently open EndNote library.

It appears that Firefox is rejecting the plug-in.  No other options on Macs?  Chrome or Safari?

This worked exactly as you described. I was able to submit an assignment for grad school on time because of you! Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
