EndNote can find and attach full text articles to some references already in your library. If the Find Full Text function does not appear to work when you're off campus check that you have correctly configured EndNote:
PCs Edit - Preferences - Find Fulltext
Macs - Endnote X7 - Preferences - Find Fulltext
Open URL Path = http://sr4lp2wr3c.search.serialssolutions.com
Authenticate with URL = http://libproxy.murdoch.edu.au/login?url=

EndNote can find and attach full text articles to some references already in your library.
You will need to configure EndNote (refer to box left) to use this function the first time.
NB: EndNote will not always find the full text article. This may be due to the quality of the data in the reference or the Murdoch University Library may not have a subscription to the journal.
If EndNote is unable to find full text (due to firewalls, network speed, non subscriptions etc) you can attach it manually:
Alternatively highlight the relevant EndNote reference and drag and drop the PDF icon into the reference (this is easiest done with the desktop shown and your EndNote library window minimised)
From a folder: highlight the relevant EndNote reference, and while in your EndNote library click
References>File Attachments>Attach File. Browse your folders for the PDF and then double click to attach it to the reference.
If a PDF contains DOI (Digital Object Identifier) EndNote can import a file or folder containing several files and automatically create the reference. To import a file or folder make sure you are connected to the internet.
Automatic PDF Handling
To set up the automatic transfer of PDF's to your library
Any new PDFs saved will now appear in the PDF folder/Imported (this Imported folder is automatically created by EndNote and simultaneously the imported pdfs will appear as references in your library with the pdf attached.
You can annotate (add your own notes) using sticky notes and highlight text in attached PDF documents
You can mark your references as read by clicking on the grey dot which will un-bold the reference (to reverse simply click on the dot again):
You can assign your references a rating scale according to your own criteria.
Highlight the reference and click in the Rating column to add the number of stars required.
You can search your library for all references of a certain rating:
