EndNote is a bibliographic software tool that allows you to store, organise and manage your references in a database called an EndNote library. These references can be linked to your word processing documents to instantly create in-text citations and bibliographies in your chosen referencing style.

Why do I need filters or connection files?
Filters are used when importing saved records from a database search into Endnote when direct export is not available.
Connection files enable EndNote to open, search, and import references from University library catalogues (such as the UNSW catalogue) and also from public library catalogues.
How do I find a connection file?
EndNote Connection Files include a full list of connection files.
Where do I find filters?

With the EndNote client program you can automatically locate and download pdf files of titles the library subscribes to and attach them to the references in your EndNote library.
As a first step, you will need to complete the preference settings on the Edit menu of EndNote as follows:
Open your EndNote library and highlight the references for which you wish to locate and attach pdf files and then click on the Find Full Text button on the EndNote tool bar.
You will be asked to authenticate with your UNSW z identification number and password.
The progress of the search is shown in the left-hand frame under Find Full Text.
Where a pdf has been located and attached a paperclip icon will appear against that reference in the EndNote library.
Please note that the full text search does not always find and attach the pdf and you may still have to use the Library's catalogue to determine whether the Library has full text available for any particular journal.
To establish an account with EndNnote Web, access www.myendnoteweb.com from a computer on the UNSW network.
Note: you will need to login from a computer connected to the UNSW network at least once every twelve months.
