Step 1. Pre-class survey.
We are looking forward to working with you in an upcoming EndNote workshop.
We request that you:
If you are planning to use your own computer during class, please complete the following Steps 2-5.
Contact us if you have questions or problems: email@example.com
Step 2. Install EndNote x7 on your laptop.
We encourage participants to bring their own laptops to the workshop with EndNote already installed. Please contact us prior to class if you are having problems with the EndNote installation as there will not be time in class to problem-solve installation.
EndNote is licensed by UC Davis, which makes it available for free to students. From the following link to MyUCDavis, navigate to EndNote from the top menu tabs:
UCD Resources --> Software --> Select Library in left navigation column --> EndNote
VERY IMPORTANT: Follow the download instructions precisely.
If EndNote is installed correctly it will not ask for a product key.
Please see IT Knowledge Base article for complete instructions: http://kb.ucdavis.edu/?id=219
If you encounter issues with installing please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
After you download EndNote x7 you will be prompted to update the software. We recommend that you respond to the prompt by updating EndNote to x 7.8
Step 3. EndNote Videos
Take a few minutes to watch some introductory videos from the EndNote | Thomson Reuter's website:
Step 4. Consider installing Firefox Browser, if it is not already installed.
This is recommended if you only have Safari browser. While Safari and EndNote are compatible, some export to EndNote functions are not as streamlined in Safari (and can be frustrating).
Step 5. Configure Google Scholar for UC-eLinks and EndNote
A configuration step is required to automatically access UC Davis Library's licensed full-text articles and export to EndNote from within Google Scholar.
Go to: http://scholar.google.com
Select the Settings gear icon. Make the following adjustments:
- Select 20 results per page.
- Bibliography manager: Select EndNote, not BibTex.
- Note that Open WorldCat is selected.
- If University of California Davis - UCD-eLinks is not already selected, then search for it and click on the checkbox.
- If California Digital Library - UC-eLInks is not already selected, then search for it and click on the checkbox.
