Posted On: Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 13:09 by Beverly Murphy

Want to find the full-text for the citations in your EndNote libraries? A new EndNote feature can be used to find the full text versions of the articles and store them within the Library for you. It's easy to use and does a fairly good job.

When you have selected the citations that you want to find, choose the “Find Full Text” feature. You will need to go to Preferences and change them for this feature so that it uses "PubMed Linkout" and the "Open URL Path" (http://getitatduke.library.duke.edu), which will try to link you to the full text at Duke.
