How to Attach a File to a Bibliographic Record in EndNote

If using the Find Full Text feature does not retrieve a full text but you have the full text article in PDF, you can manually attach it to the bibliographic record:

  1. In the EndNote library, double click the reference to which you want to attach the file.
  2. Scroll down to the File Attachments field.
  3. Right click your mouse and choose File Attachments.
  4. Click on Attach File.
  5. Find the file you want to attach.
  6. Once attached, the the file thumbnail icon will appear in the field of File Attachments. The full text article is placed in the accompanying data folder. So do not remove that data folder.
  7. A clip icon is now displayed to the right of the record in the EndNote library.
