What is Find Full Text?
Connecting Find Full Text to the UNC Libraries
The Find Full Text feature works best when your computer is connected to the UNC campus network. To improve retrieval of full text files when off-campus, do the following:
1. In your EndNote library, select Edit > Preferences from the menu bar. The EndNote Preferences dialog box will open.
2. In the left column, click on Find Full Text.
3. Check all four boxes for Web of Science, DOI, PubMed, and OpenURL.
4. Copy and paste the following text into the field called OpenURL Path:
5. Verify that the information in the dialog box matches the box picture below.
6. Click the Apply button. Then, click OK.

Not Finding Full Text?
You may not get the full text even if UNC Libraries provide access to the article and you are on campus. There are a few reasons for this:
If you are off-campus, you can try logging into a campus VPN and attempting to download the full text while connecting to the VPN.
If the full text is not found using Find Full Text, then you can manually attach the PDF to your references. Some aggregator databases, such as ScienceDirect or EBSCO databases such as CINAHL or PsycInfo, provide a URL that will take you to the full text instead of providing you a PDF.
Clicking on the URL will allow you to access the article by entering your Onyen and password. If there is no URL, you can try typing the article title into PubMed or Google Scholar and using the Find@UNC button to locate the PDF or to request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
You may want to save the PDF in the same folder as those EndNote locates automatically. To do that, find the .Data file with the same name as your library, open the PDF folder, and save the PDF.
Once you save the PDF file to your computer, you can attach it to the EndNote citation with the paper clip icon found in the top tabs of the reference window.
