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.
