Please Note:
Baystate uses OpenAthens to authenticate its subscriptions from off-campus, which does not integrate with EndNote. So, you may find that using the Find Full Text feature works better when you are on-campus or using a computer that is on the Baystate network.


Once you have references saved in your EndNote library, highlight/select the citations you would like and click the Find Full Text button in the toolbar at the top. EndNote will search the Web and library resources for full text and will show you the results on the left side of the page (any full text PDFs will also attach to the corresponding citations). Please see screenshot below for more details:
