After the search, citation management is necessary...
By citation management, we mean managing all the citations (or references) you retrieve from the bibliographic databases (PubMed, etc) or search engines. Typically you would use a bibliographic manager software application to manage the citations. Once you import the references into your application, you can review and weed out those that do not meet your inclusion criteria. You can also annotate the record, and attach or import the full-text PDF into the record.
Use citation management tools for managing the references found during the search process. EndNote is the only one supported at Mayo.

Removing duplicate references
Your literature searches may result in thousands of references, many of which may be duplicates and which should not be counted in your systematic review. If you're working with a librarian, he or she will have removed any duplicate references from the EndNote library. If you're not working with a librarian, this resource will guide you through removing the duplicates from your library.
Article describing how to remove duplicates from an EndNote library.
"A key step in the review process is the structured extraction of data from eligible primary studies, a procedure that, typically, pairs of reviewers conduct in duplicate and independently. In any systematic review, a crucial task for the project's leader, or in a better-funded situation, a dedicated systematic review coordinator, is managing the data."

J of Clin Epidemiol 2009; 62(5):5-6-10.
These tools are intended to make the systematic review process more efficient with data management and extraction. You can upload the citation from your citation management program into one of these tools.
This paper describes the logistics of a method to perform the title and abstract screening, verdict assignment, and comparisons of results among multiple reviewers in EndNote. The process is blinded; all reviewers work in their own EndNote files, and after the individual inclusion and exclusion processes, the verdicts of the different reviewers are compared. The method described here can be performed much faster than comparable methods.
This article describes a novel approach for using EndNote to manage and code references in the conduct and reporting of systematic reviews and scoping reviews. The process is simple and easy for reviewers new to both EndNote and systematic reviews.
Below are two YouTube videos from the University of Exeter describing how to use EndNote to double screen and how to merge two duplicate libraries together when double screening for a systematic review.
