AboutEndNote is intended to become a standard referencing tool at ISBE. It is currently available under Windows environment and an up-to-date version or a recent update is available on thirdparty.
The main component of the EndNote package is the EndNote Program executable. Upon the first start-up you will be prompted to specify a new EndNote library (.enl) file. The best of means of populating it is via the ISI Web of Knowledge. You will need an Athens account to gain access to this site and if you have not received the details of your allocated account yet, please confer the appropriate library helpdesk (Blue 1, opposite the escalator).
ReferencingOnce you have logged on you will need to enable your browser to download references by acquiring a patch or a self-extracting archive. With some browsers, this function appears to be built-in so this step could be skipped. There is no direct link to the download page of this feature as you must log on first. A sensible route for getting to this page would be to use search.
One way of importing references is to connect to university catalogues and perform search, However, this type of search spans a relatively small pool of (local) data. To get references from the Web of knowledge, here is one procedural suggestion:
WARNING: it seems safer to save your imported references in a newly-created container, e.g. temp.enl. Subsequently, data entries can be dragged-and-dropped onto your default references library.
BibTeXFor BibTeX users, conversion tools are available from: http://louvain.bpa.arizona.edu:8080/ocs/biblio.html, but it is very strict about its input data layout. If you find any bugs or wish for the converter to be improved, please E-mail Mark Ginsburg as he would be happy to do the necessary work.
SupportThe help pages in EndNote and the on-line tutorial on the ISI Web of Knowledge cover much of the available functionality.
