SPH 201 Students
The Carlson Health Sciences Librarians are looking forward to joining SPH 201:
- Friday, August 5, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 noon
- If possible, please bring your laptop to class, loaded with EndNote x7.5 software
The workshop will be an introduction to using EndNote citation management software to organize, cite, and share public health literature for MPH students.
Prior to class, please complete the brief survey [below] and Steps 1 - 4 in the boxes that follow.
If you have problems with installing the software, contact for help prior to the session. It will not be possible to work on software installation problems during the EndNote session on Friday, August 5th.
Contact us if you have questions or problems: firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 1. Install EndNote x7.5 on your laptop.
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.
Installation Notes: 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 still encounter issues please send email to email@example.com
Step 2. 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 3. 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.
- Search for California Digital Library -- UC-eLinks and click on the checkbox.
- If University of California Davis -- UC-eLinks is not already selected, then search for it and click on the checkbox.
- You should have two Library links now selected (University of California Davis, and California Digital Library).
Step 4. EndNote Videos
Take a few minutes to watch some introductory videos from the EndNote | Thomson Reuter's website:
