Export Bookmarks

With BibSonomy you are able to export your lists of bookmarks in different formats in order to use them with other programs. Instead of exporting each bookmark individually, you can also export a batch of bookmarks at once.

To export your bookmarks, go to your user page to view the bookmarks you have already added to your collection. (Click here to learn how to add bookmarks.) Click on the arrow symbol on the very right next to the column with the bookmarks. Now you can choose your preferred export format for exporting your bookmarks.


After you clicked on an export format, your bookmarks will be displayed in the corresponding format. You can now import the data into your requested program.
