EndNote allows you to search some databases and library catalogues directly from within the EndNote program. This option, called online search, allows you collect references wihtout needing to go to the database's own website. Note, however, that it only works for some databases, not all of them!
If you are prompted for a password when using the online search function, leave the boxes blank and click "OK." If the database is set up to work for McGill, you can then conduct your search.
If you are off campus, you will first need to connect to McGill's Virtual Private Network before using the online search feature. It doesn't work with EZProxy (the library's other system for off-campus access).
