Ah, but that exists. At least it does for me when I use Zotero and
select the 'export to Citeline'
option (from the SIMILE Zotz add-on). When I sign in to Citeline with a
new bibtex file I get a
screen that says:

"elect which one of your exhibits will be populated with this newly
submitted data (while all the configurations and layout settings will
remain the same):

      MacKenzie's Bibliography [Wednesday, August 13, 2008 12:34:13 PM]

Or create a new one from scratch (starting from default configurations
and layout settings):

New Exhibit

So I just select the first option and off I go. I gather you're not
seeing that option...

To try that, you would have to install Zotero (it's a Firefox add-on
that provide citation management like Endnote, see If you have Zotero installed, then you can also
install our add-on called 'Zotz' which lets you
export your citations directly into Citeline. Note that you have to be
signed in to Citeline first in order for it to figure
out that you have an existing template.

I haven't tested this with Endnote since I don't use that product, but I
think it will work similarly...
