Proxy Access to McMaster eResources

Linking McMaster's access to full text articles within EndNote

EndNote is able to search for full text articles that are available from McMaster's library subscriptions and/or that are freely available on the Internet.  When EndNote locates a copy of an article, it automatically downloads and attaches the PDF to the corresponding EndNote record.

To get the most out of this feature, you will need to change the settings in EndNote.

  • In EndNote, go to Endnote PREFERENCES - Find Full Text
  • In the OpenURL Path field insert:
  • In the Authenticate with-URL insert:

CAUTION: If your library is large and you attach full text to everything we subscribe to, this may trigger a breach in our licenses with the publishers for excessive downloads.
