This post is in response to inquiries from Education graduate students who use the web-based RefWorks citation management solution for harvesting journal citations, but would like to ultimately have their citations reside in the desktop-based EndNote software. Presuming you are familiar with RefWorks, we will proceed from the point at which you have collectied citations in a specific RefWorks folder, and are prepared to export them to a text file on your desktop for later use with EndNote.

As many of you are aware, the ERIC.ed.gov website sponsored by the US Department of Education has suspended access to many of its user-contributed, full-text documents - those with accession numbers starting with the letters "ED." This was done to isolate and begin removing sensitive personal information found in some portion of the older documents that had previously been available on microfiche.
