We do NOT recommend using Online Search as suggested in the video (at 1m 33s) for Library Search or general topic searches in databases. We recommend using Direct Export instead (shown at 2m 50s). Direct Export allows you to use the advanced search options available in databases to retrieve, select and export relevant results and import them into your EndNote Library. Note: You can use Online Search for single reference searches in databases, if you prefer.
