The EndNote Getting Started Guide for both Windows and Mac can be downloaded from:

http://endnote.com/support/online-user-manual/x7

Note: You can download the entire manual from the top of the list.

 

  1. EndNote requires the installation of a connection file which holds configuration settings for each library database you will connect to.

    Note: EndNote also refers to a saved reference file as a "library".

    To download the connection file to Princeton Theological Seminary (for example: "Princeton Theo Sem.enz"), go to http://endnote.com/downloads/connection/princeton-theological-seminary-nj

    To download all available connection files, go to http://endnote.com/downloads/connections (you can also search for individual connection files here).

  2. After downloading the connection file, double-click to open it in EndNote. The following screen will appear:



  3. In EndNote, click “File > Save As. Delete the word “copy” and click “Save”. This saves the connection file in EndNote, but does not activate it. Click File > Close Connection.



  4. To activate the connection, click "more ..." as in the following screen:



  5. The following screen opens:
