Harvest: UC Davis Library Catalog (University of California, Davis)

If you want call numbers to download into your EndNote library with citations, first download this current Harvest filter by control-clicking the link and choosing Save Target As ... (in Internet Explorer) or Save Link Target As ... (in Netscape, Mozilla or Firefox): Harvest (UCDavis) and then dragging it to the Filters folder of your EndNote program. Make sure you delete any U_of_California-Davis.enf or harvest-ucdavis.enf that is already there. After doing that, go to Harvest UC Davis Catalog under Research Tools.

  1. DIRECT DOWNLOAD OF HARVEST RECORDS INTO ENDNOTE DOES NOT WORK WITH INTERNET EXPLORER OR ANY OF THE NETSCAPE SUITE OF WEB BROWSERS (FIREFOX, MOZILLA OR SEAMONKEY). YOU MUST USE SAFARI.
  2. Do your search in Harvest; either select individual citatations for download by checking the boxes to the left or select Select All above Title.
  3. Once you have selected desired citations, click Add to My E-Shelf.
  4. Click My E-Shelf on the upper right of the window.
  5. Click Select All above Title.
  6. Click Save/Mail.
  7. In the next window, under Records:, click the All (BASKET) radio button.
  8. Under Record format, go to Select Predefined Format: and click on the pulldown menu, selecting EndNote/RIS Tagged Output Format.
  9. Under Encoding:, click the radio button ISO 8859-1.
  10. Scroll down and click Go.
  11. The Downloads window will open, showing progress of the download. Your search results will be saved wherever you have configured Safari to put downloads. If you are unsure of where that is, check under Preferences, then Save Downloaded Files to.
  12. Open EndNote, open the library you want your Harvest citations to go into, go to File and then Import.
  13. In the new window that opens, under Import File Name choose the file you just downloaded.
  14. Under Import Options: click on the pulldown menu and scroll to RefMan RIS.enf.
  15. Under Text Translation: choose Unicode (UTF-8).
  16. Click Import.
  17. If you want UCD call numbers in your citations, bear in mind that call numbers will download into the Notes field, not the Call Number field. You must cut and paste call numbers into that field.
