Guidance on using EndNote software at the University of Adelaide

Using a connection file (online search function) from within EndNote allows you to connect to, search, and import references from freely available resources such as library catalogues and PubMed and a few others such as Web of Science.

When you search a database using this option, you can select references to import into your EndNote library, or choose to import references in bulk.

You will not be able to use this function for searching all the databases available through the University of Adelaide Library. You can always search in the native database and then transfer your references into your EN library.

When searching the UofA Library, you will only be able to search the catalogue - you will not be able to search for the contents of books and journals.

Connection to University of Adelaide Library Search:

This feature is available when you download the EN program from the University of Adelaide ITS website.

Select more to choose it from the list of Connection files and add it to the list
