Configuring EndNote to find Full Text

EndNote X2 and later versions can find full text articles with the Open URL Link which connects your EndNote record to the University of Manitoba Libraries GetIt@UML menu.  EndNote X3 and later can also automatically locate articles and download them into your EndNote library. Some articles cannot be located using EndNote's Find Full Text feature but may still be available at the University of Manitoba Libraries.  To check for full text using Open URL right click on an EndNote reference and select Open URL Link.

Configuring EndNote to work with Find Full Text in X3 and higher:

  1. Click on File Edit > Preferences.
  2. Click on Find Full Text.
  3. Checkmark all the Find Full text boxes.
  4. In the OpenURL path box type or copy and paste the URL for your Group:

     5. In the Authenticate with box type or copy/paste:

Group URL

         6. Click on Apply then OK.

  2. Click / highlight the desired citations (shift or ctrl click to select multiple citations)
  3. Authenticate by clicking on References then Find Full Text then Authenticate (you need do this only once per session)
