About EndNote and EndNote Online

EndNote is a software tool for publishing and managing bibliographies. Using this product, writers save countless hours of typing and interpreting style requirements when creating bibliographies for curricula vitae, manuscripts, thesis/dissertations, grant proposals, term papers and other publications.

With either EndNote software or EndNote Online you can do the following:

  1. Collect references from electronic and traditional sources.
  2. Organize your references for your research topics and papers.
  3. Create a formatted bibliography for your paper or cite references while you write.

Find Full Text URL Path & Authentication

Edit/EndNote Menu --> Preferences --> Find Full Text

Open URL Path:
Authenticate With: Leave blank

To search the library's holdings for an EndNote reference, select the reference, open the Reference Menu --> URLs --> Open URL. This will open an internet browser to the Primo VE page for the article. Log in with your Open Athens credentials. If the Library has the article in our collection there will be a link to download the article full text. If it is not, you can use the "Request article via ILL" link to open an Interlibrary Loan request form, then copy and paste the citation information to the form.
