Set Find Full Text Preferences to SBU Libraries

EndNote offers the option to find full text of the references usually in PDF format downloaded to your EndNote Library. Before doing this, it is recommended that you set Find Full Text Preferences to connect to SBU Libraries resources within EndNote.  

  • Choose Find Full Text under EndNote Preferences (For PC users the EndNote Preferences is under Edit; For Mac users the EndNote Preferences is under EndNote tab)
  • Check all the four boxes if they are not already checked
  • Enter SBU Libraries OpenURL and Authendicate With URL (proxy)

OpenURL Path is:

Authenticate With (proxy):

Note that:

1) You do not need to enter Authenticate With URL if your computer is on campus

2) The EndNote Find Full Text feature will not find everything for you. Some journals and database services (e.g., JSTOR) will not work with it.
