You may have URLs/links to articles or e-books in your EndNote Desktop or EndNote Online libraries which work perfectly on campus but when off campus you are asked to log in, even if you have already logged in via ezproxy. This is because when you log in off campus, the URL of every library resource you see is automatically altered to include "proxy.lib.ul.ie". This tells the database provider that you are affiliated with UL and are entitled to full text as normal.
If you click a URL such as http://isc.sagepub.com/content/42/2/78, on campus you will be able to access the article but off campus you will be asked to log in because you are not recognised.
To gain access to the full-text follow the steps below:.
The Find Full Text feature allows you to find the full-text of items in your EndNote library.
To Find the Full-Text of references:
If EndNote cannot find the PDF this does not mean 100% that the full-text is not available through UL's subscriptions and collections as sometimes the automatic link may not work. You will need to check for the individual journal via the Library website to ensure that the article is not accessible in UL.
