There are two things you can do to flag imported references:
(1) Add a unique keyword to an unused field (such as the "Label" field or
the "Custom 1" field) for all references in Library 1 *before* you import
them into Library 2. Use the "Change Text" command from the "References"
menu to accomplish this.
After importing, you can search for those references in Library 2 by
searching for your unique keyword in the Label or Custom 1 field.
(2) In EndNote 4, *immediately after* you import your references from
Library 1 into Library 2, you will see only those records that have just
been imported (i.e., EndNote displays, "Showing X out of Y References"
where "X" will be those you just imported.) Use the "Change Text" command
at this time to add a unique keyword or string to a custom field or the
Note that all newly imported references will have the highest record
numbers in the library. So, if you know the highest record number in the
original library before you import, you'll know that the newest records
will have higher numbers.
TIP: always back up both libraries before you import one into the other,
because there is no way to undo and import!
