  Endnote 8

What is Endnote?
Endnote is a bibliographic referencing tool that enables you to:

  • Create and maintain a personal searchable database of references
  • Format citations and bibliographies in a variety of styles
  • "Cite while you write" in word processing documents 
  • Compile and organize your research information

How do I access Endnote?
The University Libraries does not provide access to the Endnote program.  However, Endnote Web is available in Web of Knowledge databases (Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Science Citation Index and Social Science Citation Index).  You can also purchase this program from many retailers including the Endnote website . 

Is it possible to search the Library's Catalog with Endnote?
Yes, it is possible to search the USC Library Catalog with the Endnote program, but first you will need to update the connection file in your Endnote program.  Follow these steps to update your connection file:

1.  Right click on the following link:  U of South Carolina.enz.  This will be your new
     connection file.
2.  Select Save Target As...
3.  Save the file in your Endnote Connections Directory.  This is often c:\program
      files\endnote\connections\
but will vary depending on where you installed your copy
     of Endnote.
4.  Select Yes when asked if you would like to overwrite the existing file.
5.  If you were running Endnote when you saved the file, exit and restart the program.

After following the above steps you will now be able to search the USC Library Catalog through the Endnote program.

Can I search the Library’s electronic databases/indexes with Endnote?
Current versions of the Endnote software do not support proxy server technologies; therefore, you will not be able to search the Library’s databases/indexes by using Endnote.  Instead of searching these resources by using Endnote, we suggest that you search them directly and then import the desired results into your Endnote library.  Searching these products directly has the added benefit of using the enhanced search capabilities found within them.   Importing citations into Endnote varies depending on the resource being used.  Instructions for importing citations into your Endnote library can be found here.
