Which reminds us of why sometimes we like to have real, printed books in our hands...

From on campus, visit EndNoteWeb.com and click on the “EndNote Web Login” link to sign up for an account. If you already have a personal account in Web of Science, you should already have access.
Once you have signed up, you can begin to use EndNote Web from any web-accessible computer. You can:
- import references from any database (Web of Science, WorldCat, PubMed, etc.)
- save citations to folders
- download plugins to create footnotes and bibliographies in Microsoft Word
If you are currently using EndNote software on your personal computer (version X.0.2 or higher), you can transfer references seamlessly between it and EndNote Web. Earlier versions of EndNote can import references from EndNote Web via a text file.
For more information on using EndNote Web, see their online tutorials.

1. Submit a printout of what you need at the ILL desk.
2. Fill out a paper ILL form at the ILL desk.
3. Use the online request form on the ILL homepage
4. Use the "Find It!" button in our databases to request ILL materials not available full-text or online.
Although you will not be able to request materials directly through MnPALS or MnLINK, we will be accepting all ILL requests that come in through any of these four options. Questions? Contact Kathie Martin.
*Please note that ILL through MnPALS and MnLINK will also be unavailable January 2-5 due to the second stage of the software upgrade. We will send out additional information at that time, and you will be able to request materials through the same four methods described above.

Purchased last spring, the Historical New York Times contains the full text of the paper from its first issue in 1851 to 2003. An additional year of content is added annually (2004 content will be added next summer), with our subscription to ProQuest Newsstand filling the gap. The database is fully indexed and searchable with full-page images, including graphics. Now we just need volunteers to help move our microfilm into storage!
