EndNote: Find Full-Text

Find Full-Text

The full desktop verson of EndNote is set up to find and insert PDF's along with the citations.   These are limited to open access journals and to journals where the Carpenter Library has a paid subscription.  Once the pdf is attached to the record in the Desktop version of EndNote, you can sync your primary EndNote Library to your EndNote Online account and the pdfs will also be available for you to use online.  This is not true for the FREE (standalone) Online version of EndNote.


Here's how to get more help with EndNote:
