EndNote Click buttons explained
View PDF: EndNote Click found a PDF, either in your existing EndNote Click Locker, from a publisher's website, or an open access version of the article. The top icon is usually located in the bottom left corner of your browser. The second icon is usually found next to an article citation.
*Please note that EndNote Click provides links to PDFs regardless of whether the SFU Library has a subscription. If the View PDF button/link from EndNote Click produces an error message, check the SFU Library Catalogue for alternative options.
Search Library: EndNote Click was unable to locate a PDF. Clicking on this icon or button will automatically check the SFU Library's journal collection for alternative online access (such as through a third party database) and/or provide you with a link to SFU's Interlibrary Loan form. The top icon is usually located in the bottom left corner of your browser. The second icon is usually found next to an article citation.
Using EndNote Click with Google Scholar and PubMed
When searching Google Scholar or PubMed you can select multiple PDFs at once by clicking on the EndNote Click extension located in top right hand corner next to the URL address bar.
