Importing Reference Data into EndNote on page 75). Once you know

NOTE: If the online database that you access is not available on a
Z39.50 server, EndNote will not be able to connect directly to it. We
suggest that you submit a request for Z39.50 compatibility to your
librarian or the institution that provides access to the database. You can
still import references downloaded from non Z39.50 databases.
About the PubMed Database
For this lesson, you will connect to PubMed, the National Library of
Medicine's online public access version of their MEDLINE database.
PubMed is the remote database you will be searching; the National
Library of Medicine is the information provider.
For Users With Dial up Internet Connections
If you use a modem and a phone line to connect to the Internet, as
opposed to a direct network connection, this section pertains to you.
Connecting: Most setups for dial up connections are configured to
automatically dial your information provider and connect to the
Internet when you use an application that requests an online connection
(as EndNote's Connect command does). However, some setups, such
as America Online, require that you establish an online connection
(sign on) before choosing EndNote's Connect command.
Disconnecting: EndNote will not disconnect your Internet connection
at any point. You need to shut down your connection when you have
finished using EndNote's Connect feature.
NOTE: America Online users must have version 3.0 or later in order to
use EndNote's online features.
