EndNote allows you to search some databases and library catalogues directly from within the EndNote program. With this option, you don't need to go outside the EndNote program to collect references.
From library computers, you can directly search the library catalogue directly through EndNote by going to the Tools menu, selecting Online Search, and then selecting “McGill U.”
If you’re using your own computer, you first need to download the McGill Library connection file from this page. Once the file is installed in your connection file folder, you will be able to select the online search function.
Save the downloaded files in your Connections folder, which is typically located at Program Files\EndNote X8\Connections, or to your personal Connections folder. You can see the location of your Styles folder by going to the Edit menu in EndNote and choosing Preferences. Click on Folder Locations.
To change a folder location, click the Select Folder button, open the folder that you would like to designate as the new Style, Filter, or Connection folder, and click Select Folder.
