EndNote X & QUAKELINE®

Millions of researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians use EndNote to search online databases, organize references, images and PDFs, and create bibliographies instantly. We are pleased to offer our users access to a filter file which imports QUAKELINE® records into EndNote. A direct connection to QUAKELINE® through EndNote is not possible at this time.

To begin, you must have EndNote installed on your computer.

  • If you are affiliated with the University at Buffalo, you may obtain a free copy of the latest version of EndNote from the libraries' site.
  • If you are not affiliated with the University at Buffalo, you will need to obtain the software through your institution or by purchasing it. Visit the Endnote site for more information.

Downloading, Installing, and Using the EndNote Filter File

The UB libraries offer two custom EndNote filter downloads for the QUAKELINE® database – one for Internet Explorer and another for Firefox – supported with tutorials, installation directions, and EndNote FAQs. Visit the UB libraries' site for additional information.
