11.3.1 To cite a reference in a footnote or endnote:
Use the appropriate command in OpenOffice.org Writer to create the footnote or endnote. (EndNote does
not create the footnote or endnote in the document, but is used to insert and format citations in the note.)
1. Position the cursor in the footnote or endnote where you would like the citation(s) to appear.
2. Insert the citation as you normally would.
3. The EndNote style that is selected when you choose Format Bibliography determines how citations in
footnotes and endnotes are formatted. EndNote can format these citations as brief in-text citations or
like complete references in the bibliography. It can also create a special format specific to footnotes or
endnotes, including options like "Ibid." and other variations of shortened references when a citation
appears more than once in the footnotes or endnotes.
12.1 Creating a Travelling Library
Each formatted citation in your Word document is saved with field codes that embed reference data in the
document. The paper contains a "Traveling Library" of references cited.
The first time a citation is formatted, EndNote looks in the open library and finds the corresponding
reference. If you later reformat, EndNote again looks in the open library for that reference. However, if
the library is not available or not open, EndNote uses the Traveling Library for reference information.
Because reference data is kept with each formatted citation, you can collaborate with other authors on
a paper without each author having the same EndNote library.
The reference data saved with each citation includes all fields except Notes, Abstract, and Figure.
Note: Do not unformat your document if you do not have the original references in your libraries.
Unlike formatted citations, unformatted citations require that you have the corresponding EndNote
libraries open in order to format references.
Exporting Word’s Traveling Library to an EndNote Library
1. Open the document in Word.
2. Word 2003 : From the Tools menu, go to the EndNote X7 submenu and choose Export Traveling
Word 2007, 2010 and 2013: On the EndNote tab, in the Tools group, select Export to EndNote and then
Export Traveling Library.
3. On the Export Traveling Library dialog, select either:
An existing EndNote library or select a library from the drop-down list of available libraries, or click
Browse to locate a library.
A new EndNote library: You will be prompted to name and Save the new library.
Note: We recommend that you export to a new EndNote library, so you can review the records before
adding them to an existing library.
There is an alternate way to copy references from your Word document to an EndNote library. Open both
your Word document and the EndNote library. Then, in EndNote, go to the Tools menu, then the Cite While
You Write submenu, and choose Import Traveling Library.
Note: When you use the Export/Import Traveling Library commands, the exported references are
renumbered and do not retain their original reference numbers.
