Question: In EndNote, Where are All the Other Connections, Filters and Styles?

Question: I used to see tons of Connections, Filters and Styles. Now I just see 100 of each. Where are all the rest?

Answer: You need to “install” them into EndNote. They are already on your hard drive. You just need to bring them into the EndNote program by customizing it. Here are the instructions for the Mac and PC.

“Importing” more Filters, Connections Files, and Styles in EndNote X2 or X3

MacIntosh

Exit Word

Under the Endnote Menu, go to Customizer

Open the three sections and choose items of interest as you like or those recommended by the librarian:

  • Connections (to databases NJH has access to):
    • OCLC
    • Other Databases
    • OVID
  • Import Filters:
    • NLM
    • OCLC
    • Other Databases
    • OVID

    • Export
    • Generic
    • Life Sciences
    • Medicine
    • Nursing

After selecting Sets that you want:

  • Click Next

Windows

Go to:  Start –> Control Panel –> Add or Remove files –> Endnote X3

Click on Change

Choose Modify

Expand the lists  by clicking on the + sign next to

  • Additional Connections,
  • Additional Filters
  • Additional Styles

Choose items of interest as you like or those recommended by the librarian above under the Mac Section. Select this way:

  • Click in the X
  • Choose  –> Will be installed on local hard drive

After selecting sets that you want:

  • Click Next
  • Click Next
  • Wait while Installation occurs.
  • Click Finish

Now, When you look in the appropriate “Manager,” you will see a long list. Put a check in the box to see them in your short list.

  1. I have to show my appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this particular scenario. As a result of browsing through the world wide web and meeting techniques which were not helpful, I believed my life was over. Existing minus the approaches to the issues you have solved by means of your good article is a critical case, and those which might have negatively damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your site. Your good natural talent and kindness in touching all the things was priceless. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the expert and sensible help. I won’t think twice to propose your web site to anyone who wants and needs guidelines about this subject matter.
