EndNote 20 Desktop provides unlimited storage space for full text and file attachments.
EndNote can search for full text documents for records in your library and add them to the relevant record as an attachment.
To search for free full text online for references in your library:
If you are working off campus and are not connected to the university network then it is possible to connect to UCL's VPN to increase the number of full text PDFs retrieved. This helps to retrieve full text PDFs from UCL's subscription e-journal content.
Follow ISD's UCL Virtual Private Network connection guide for information on how to connect. Once you are connected, follow the steps above to search for fulltext articles.
Not all full text articles will be found using the Find full text function. It is not yet working for every publisher and can be inconsistent, so it may not retrieve the full text even where UCL subscribes to the content.
Some people have experienced temporary variations in the number of full text documents found. It can be worth repeating the Find full text search again for unfound articles as this can sometimes increase the number retrieved.
If EndNote does not find the full text document then you can find other ways to retrieve the full text such as through EndNote Click or by searching Explore. You can then attach the file to the EndNote record.
If the Find Full text tool doesn't seem to be working at all, make sure that when you first open the EndNote programme, you allow internet access if any pop-up window appears, e.g. from your internet security software.
To attach a file, such as a PDF, to a record:
Where a reference has a file attached, a paperclip icon appears next to the record in the central pane.
Where a reference has a PDF file attached, you can view and annotate it from within EndNote.
You can also open attached files in their default programme, such as Adobe Acrobat for PDFs:
