How to Enable SFX (OpenURL Link) in EndNote X2?

May 29, 2009 – Yingting  

SFX enables a link to be made from every record in your EndNote database to the UMDNJ’s University Libraries’ SFX server, which may provide a link to the electronic full text of a journal article when available and will show access to the online catalog if the journal is available in print.

To enable this option in EndNote X2, you need to do the following:

  • From the Edit menu choose Preferences and URLs & Links.
  • Make sure the box next to Enable OpenURL is checked.
  • In the OpenURL Path box, replace the default path with:
    http://sfx.umdnj.edu:3210/sfxlcl3
  • In the Arguments box, make sure the statement matches this one: SFX_Argument

To use the Findit service in EndNote, you must have the desired record open and then go to the References menu to URL then choose OpenURL Link to bring up the Findit menu or to access the fulltext article directly.
