Importing an existing reading list or bibliography into Resource Lists

Univeristy of Ediburgh Logo

As well as having the ability to bookmark an article or book from the web or the library catalogue, Resource Lists using Talis Aspire also has the ability to import your reading list from an existing bibliography or reference document.

You can export any bibliographic/citation list from your reference managing software such as EndNote, RefWorks, CiteULike, Zotoro etc. and upload this directly into My Bookmarks for use in any of your Resource Lists.

We’ve created a step by step guide with instructions and screenshots of the process: RIS file importing (PDF)

Additionally, Queen Margaret University have created two excellent video tutorials on how to export from EndNote desktop and EndNote web, how to save and then how to import your bibliographies into Talis Aspire.
