EndNote at Rowan University

Guide to Using EndNote for students, faculty, and staff at Rowan University

EndNote and Searching Databases

EndNote can search and import database citations using its own search interface.  However, many academic libraries use authentication methods to access resources and EndNote's search interface may not connect to many databases from off-campus locations or networks. EndNote's search interface is designed for broad, basic searches and is not intended to replace a databases' search interface that offers search options that can narrow searches to fewer, more relevant articles.  Consequently, Rowan University Libraries doesn't recommend searching and retrieving references using EndNote's search functions.  Contact your campus Library for assistance searching databases. 

Also, each of the major Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox) works differently when exporting. Depending on the browser you may be prompted to open or save references and/or select EndNote from a list of programs. Select open if prompted. You also may be prompted to choose between sending the references to EndNote or EndNote Online.
