EndNote Desktop: Sharing libraries and collaborating on research papers

April 20, 2021 - 1:39pm by Melissa Funaro

Ways to Share EndNote Desktop Library 1. EndNote X9 Group Sharing You can share your EndNote library (or groups) through EndNote Desktop Pros: Read/write access, easy Cons: The sharer can only share (sync) one library, the share-ee can have multiple libraries shared with them, make sure to finish syncing before closing the library, everyone needs to have an EndNote online account   2. Compress and send an EndNote library (or group) through email or Box Compress and send your library How to: File > Compressed Library (.enlx) Pros: PDFs can be included in the EndNote library Cons: X9.3 isn't backward compatible. If this happens send an RIS file but note, all Groups and Group Sets will be lost, changes made by one user won’t be reflected in other users’ files.   3. Send your EndNote library embedded within the Word Document you've been editing with EndNote. Your Word document contains a "Traveling Library" comprising all references cited using EndNote. This enables you to collaborate with your colleagues on the same document without having to have the same EndNote library. Pros: Easy Cons: No pdfs, metadata incomplete, required that everyone has EndNote Desktop   Ways to Collaborate on a Paper (Pros and Cons) 1. Microsoft Word or Google Docs One person makes the edits. One person has access to the EndNote library and has control over the master document.  All others collaborate on the manuscript, editing and marking where a reference goes (use author, year). The person with the master document uses the edited document to add the new references to EndNote and then references into the master document. Pros: less prone to error Cons: complicated   2. Google Docs Method There is no EndNote Cite While You Write tool available for Google Docs. Pros: Highly collaborative Cons: Complicated Directions: Highlight the references in EndNote Drag and drop the references into your Google Doc. This will create an unformatted citation, (it will have curly brackets { }). Alternatively, manually insert unformatted citations in the format {first authors surname, year #record number}. To see the record number, in EndNote, right click on the display fields shown in the middle panel and tick Record Number to add it to the display. When the manuscript is completed, download the Google Doc as a .docx file Open in Word Make sure you have a completed EndNote library from which the Word document will pull the references from. If you have people contributing from personal EndNote libraries, the library at the end needs to have all the references in it. If you don't have a copy, ask the person (people) to compress and email their citations. Turn on Instant Formatting. If the reference number don't match, Word will prompt you to clarify which reference you mean.

Grant Wood’s American Gothic Repurposed and Several Anti-Smoking Acquisitions

August 19, 2019 - 12:05pm by Melissa Funaro

Grant Wood’s American Gothic Repurposed and Several Anti-Smoking Acquisitions on view now at the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library. “American Gothic” is one of the best known works by an American artist. Iowa native Grant Wood was inspired by the small town Iowan home in Gothic Revival style and asked his sister and his dentist to pose for the painting as father and daughter residents of the well kept property.   To many viewers of “American Gothic” the scene was, and is, interpreted as a satire on rural life, but Wood avowed that the painting portrayed traditional American values, pointing out the residents’ resilience, fortitude and pride. The painting was first exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1930 where it won a prize of $300. It remains on view at the Art Institute.   Currently on display in the medical library hallway leading to the rotunda are:   Bruce McGillivray's Recycling, An Iowa Way of Life, Iowa Recycling Association, 1988. Purchased through the John F. Fulton Fund 2018   Marcia Cooper's We Can Live Without Nuclear Power, 1979. Purchased through the John F. Fulton Fund 2018   S. Cooper's Crop Rotation Pays, no date.

The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library would like to thank Hongyu Liu and Tao Wang for their donation of the glossary “English-Chinese Glossary of Basic Human Anatomy.”

July 6, 2018 - 11:31am by Melissa Funaro

The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library benefits from the generosity of many donors. Our library’s founders, Doctors Harvey Cushing, Arnold C. Klebs and John F. Fulton, donated their collection of books to Yale on the premise that a new medical library is created.  Over the years, the library’s collections grew rapidly between gifts and purchases, often made from endowments that donors provided. Today, the tradition continues, as donations help ensure a rich collection of books and other materials. Recently we received a donation of three copies of a glossary titled “English-Chinese Glossary of Basic Human Anatomy,” a gift from the authors, Hongyu Liu and Tao Wang. If you are interested in donating materials or funds to the library, please take a look at this page! https://library.medicine.yale.edu/about/giving/gifts-in-kind
