You can supplement your EndNote Library by attaching full-text PDFs to your references.
- From within EndNote you have the ability to annotate or highlight full-text PDFs.
- PDFs attached to your EndNote Library are searchable
Copyright principles apply to any PDF saved to your Endnote Library. For more information, see the copyright section.
There are several different methods of attaching full-text PDFs.
Option 1: Use EndNote to find full-text (via Findit@Flinders)
Step 1: Configure EndNote to find full-text articles
In most instances, EndNote is able to automatically find and attach PDFs of articles held by Flinders University Library. For this to work, you must first configure EndNote to connect with FindIt@Flinders.
Within EndNote, click on the Edit menu (if using a PC) or the EndNote menu (if using a Mac)
Note: You can set EndNote to automatically find full text for all imported references by checking the box below the URLs.
Step 2: Select references to find full-text
- Select one or more references in EndNote. To select all references in a group use Ctrl + A to 'select all'. We suggest doing less than 100 at a time.
- Click on References
- Click on Find Full Text
- Click on Find Full Text again
- Follow the login prompts which will require you to authenticate via Okta. A script error window may appear before Okta, click YES.
- Once logged in click Continue.
- Don't interrupt the process until it is finished. Depending on the number of references being searched, this could take some time. Look to the 'My Library' panel to see the progress and results of the search for full-text.
Option 2: Manual import
- Select the reference you wish to attach a PDF to.
- In the Reference Panel (on the right side of Endnote), click the paperclip button then select the file you wish to attach. Make sure you save your changes.
