|Remember that even if you use EndNote and have chosen APA 7 as your style, make sure that all fields are filled in correctly and that all information is included when you enter references in your EndNote library. EndNote does not fix this automatically.|
Contact senior librarian Karianne Hasledalen if you have any questions.
Open or create a new library
Start EndNote, open an existing library or make a new library:
- Open a library: File -> Open -> Open Library
- Create a new library: File -> New...
Name the library and choose where to save it - the computer's harddisk or a memory stick (do not use cloud storage)
Configure the duplicate controll by clicking the following:
- Windows: Edit > Preferences > Duplicates
- Mac: EndNote X7>Preferences>Duplicates
This window is displayed:
- Tick off Volume and Issue in the box (author, title and year is already ticked off).
- Tick off Automatically discard duplicates under Online Search Results to activate the duplicate controll.
- You can also choose what information you want to be displayed in the library, like author, year of publication and title. Choose Display Fields in the left hand menu.
Click OK or Apply to finish.
