How do I set up EndNote to access/download full text content from Mississippi State University Libraries?
Recent versions of EndNote allow users to access and download full text PDFs of open access and MSU-subscribed content, including off-campus access. To set up MSU preferences in EndNote:
What's the difference between Typical and Custom Installation? Which one do I use?
Typical Installation will only install the most popular import filters, connection files, and output styles, and may leave out those citation styles or database providers you use most often. To enable ALL filters, styles, etc., select Custom Installation and then enable all features.
Corporate/institutional authors aren't formatting correctly when I preview a citation; EndNote treats them as if they were a first and last name. How can I fix this?
There's a very simple solution. Edit the reference by simply adding a comma to the end of the corporate author name, like this:
United States Department of Agriculture,
Mississippi State University,
This "tricks" the program into interpreting the entire entity name as one last name without a first name. The comma will not appear in the actual citation, no matter which bibliographic output style is chosen.
Can I store my EndNote library in a cloud drive such as Dropbox?
EndNote currently does not recommend using Dropbox to store your libraries. If you are looking for a way to access your library remotely and/or from multiple devices, the recommended method is with an EndNote Basic account. This will sync up with EndNote on your desktop, laptop, and iPad app. Ideally, to ensure against losing your library, storing your library locally is still the best method.
Is EndNote available on any public computers on the MSU campus?
EndNote is not available on public computers.
Is there a version of EndNote that works with Linux/Ubunto?
Currently there is not a way for Linux users to use EndNote. Linux users may use alternate programs such as BibTeX and Mendeley.
Is there a way to transfer the references in a Word document to EndNote?
If you used the MS built-in Word Citation manager in the "References" tab to build your bibliography, you can import them into EndNote:
If you manually created your citations in a Word document without using the Insert Citations tool, there is no easy way. You can either copy-and-paste or manually type the citation information into a New Reference, or you can use Online Search to search for the references in databases and import them into EndNote from there.
How can I create bibliographies for separate sections in one document?
I'm using Firefox, and my references keep going to Zotero instead of EndNote.
In Firefox, go to the "Tools" menu or the orange "Firefox" menu in the top left corner. Click "Add-ons" (you may also have to click "Extensions") and under Zotero, click "Disable."
