Most databases have a Direct Export function that will export a reference into your EndNote library. The necessary steps and terminology may differ with the database. Here is a general outline of the basic steps required by most databases:
In Web of Science you can add references to a marked list before exporting or export without marking records.
1 . Export Marked list
2. Export without marking records

Direct export in PubMed only works with less then 200 citations. If you want to export more references, see the information about importing text files from PubMed.

EBSCO uses the same method for exporting references in all databases. You can select references and export them directly into EndNote. This will take a few steps. If you want to export all results and it's a large amount of records, you can choose the option Email to create a file. See more information on importing text files from EBSCO databases.

Configure Google Scholar to send references to EndNote:
After performing a search on Google Scholar click on the 'Import into EndNote'-link for the reference you want to import. If you are presented with a window asking if you want to 'Open' or 'Save' the file, choose to open the file. In the next window: select the EndNote library you want to use.
Finding the link to referencing Google books is a bit hidden.
In ProQuest you can only save 100 records a time.
When you have created an Endnote online account, you can use a browser tool or bookmarklet for importing records.
EndNote Web has two browser tools that can make importing records easier than other methods. These do not work with all databases, however, and some browsers work better than others.
Both tools can be found in EndNote Web under Downloads.
The capture tool is a bookmarklet that you add to your browser's Bookmark Toolbar. When searching article databases, you can view a record and then click the button on your toolbar to import to EndNote Web. This works with many popular databases like JSTOR and PubMed and many journal publisher sites. It also works with Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Drag the Capture Reference button to your Bookmarks bar.
EndNote Web has add-ons for Internet Explorer and Firefox. This adds a button to your toolbar that works in the same way as the Bookmarklet.
The Internet Explorer add-on will be installed automatically when you install the Cite While You Write tool for Word. The Firefox add-on is installed manually like other Firefox add-ons.
