"Find Full Text" is ONLY available while you are ON CAMPUS or using Husky OnNet

To use the Find Full Text feature, you must configure EndNote preferences properly.


In EndNoteX20: Edit> Preferences > Find Full Text.

If you have an older version: EndNote X8 > Preferences > Find Full Text (Mac) or  EndNote X9 > Edit > Preferences > Find Full Text, 

In all cases, ensure all checkboxes are checked, and enter the following: 

OpenURL Path:


EndNote Preferences, Find Full Text. Add the OpenURL path and the authentication URL.

Click OK


NOTE: If you are working off campus, you must use Husky OnNet for the Find Full Text feature to work.
VERY IMPORTANT: please be selective about downloading full text articles this way. You can download one folder of material at a time. Click on the Select Folder and then click on Enable Automatic Importing so that you are not doing a massive download and triggering a Vendor shutdown. Mass downloads may trigger journal vendor action.
