Installing EndNote 20

Good to Know

  • EndNote libraries are made up of two parts: the .enl file and the .data folder. These two parts must be kept together, both are needed for the library to work correctly.
  • EndNote libraries should be saved on your computer's hard drive. Storing and editing libraries on a network or cloud drive (Such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive) can lead to corruption and performance issues.
  • References in EndNote libraries can be synchronized between computers, tablets, and the online version of EndNote using the sync button.

Automatically Finding Full Text and Uploading PDFs

EndNote can automatically find and upload many PDFs into your EndNote Library.  (Note: This process is only available ON CAMPUS because it is authenticated by IP addresses.)  While it will find many of the article you need automatically, it won't find them all because Auraria Library does not have access to all materials.

  • Select a reference (or use Ctrl + click on references to select multiple references at once).
  • Click the magnifying glass icon.  EndNote x9 icon to find full text
  • If a window pops up, click continue.

If the above does not find the PDF, you can always download a PDF to your computer and manually attach to a reference by using the paperclip icon on the editing page of the reference.
