EndNote is divided in four sections:
In your EndNote Library you can see two toolbars:
1. The EndNote bar
Click on the items to see all the options for managing your library and references.
2. The Library bar
Options in this toolbar are among other things: searching online, searching the references in your library, add references manually or import text files. Mouse over the icons to see all the options.
In the left screen you'll find general information about your library.
All References: represents all references in your entire library. Anything presented in any subsection below all references is always part of the entire library and so presented in all references.
Configure Sync: Sync gives you the option to sync with your Endnote Online account.
Recently Added: Temporary library after adding references.
Unfiled: The number of records that is only filed in all references and not in groups.
Trash: The number of records that has been removed, but not permanently. Emptying trash will do that.
My groups: The number of records that has been filed in a group.
Find full text: Find the full text either from a selection of records or the whole library.
The center screen of your library presents a given number of fields from the imported references. You can also search in your preferences. Find more information about sorting and searching references in the 'Manage your library'-section of this LibGuide.
You can determine which fields will show in the center screen, with a maximum limit of ten columns in two ways:
1. Right click in the rule directly on top of the list of references. A pop up with field names appears. You can either select or deselect fields. The image shows a section of the field list. You can change the order of the fields by using the drag-and-drop method.
2. Open the EndNote preferences by selecting: Top bar > Edit > Preferences > Display fields.
Click Display Fields at the left, then select the Label field from the drop-down list for the column you want to assign to the Label field. You can also rename the Headings of the columns or reorder the fields.
The right screen in EndNote is the Reference panel. It consists of four elements:
