Life After Duke
Posted On: Wednesday, May 4, 2022 - 09:27 by Leila Ledbetter
Graduation is an important and exciting time of change for many students. Sadly, one of these changes may involve losing access to many Duke resources such as library subscriptions to journals and databases.
Before You Lose Access
- Go through your saved citations and PDFs and decide which ones you want to keep. If there are any articles that you would like to get PDFs for, do this before you leave while you still have access to free full text.
- Evaluate your citation manager needs before you leave. If you are using Endnote, double-check that you have the most current version on a personal device. This access will last you for a couple years, but you...

Finding Full-text with EndNote
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. Once you start the feature, you will need to agree to the copyright statement, but then EndNote will attempt to find a PDF. If...MORE
