Endnote Bibliographic Database: For Music Therapy Students and Researchers - A Mini Manual

Lars Ole Bonde, Aalborg University

|With Direct Access to the  Database (On CD-ROM)|  |Excercises for the Endnote Databases| |Excercises for Other Literature Databases

WITH DIRECT ACCESS TO THE DATABASE (On CD-ROM):

Install the CD-ROM following the instructions on the leaflet. Restart.

Open the CD-ROM (PC: use the run command; Mac: Double click the icon)

Go into the Libraries folder (PC: Select the endemo. viewer)

  1. The EndNote 3.01 program will open.
  2. Open/click on the Library you want to search (ex: Music Data II).
  3. Use the FIND command in the REFERENCE menu and type the keyword(s) you want to use. Click the FIND button.

  4. Endnote will show you the result of the search (for instance ’26 references out of 11886′). You can double-click any one you want to examine. Or you can delimit the amount of references by adding an extra keyword on the second (and third) line. Click the AND button across the line, before you click SEARCH again.
  5. If you want to print your results: Use the STYLES command and select ANNOTATED. Then chose PRINT in the FILE command – and you will get the references with abstract (if there is any).

EXCERCISES FOR THE ENDNOTE DATABASES:

Follow this strategy for your systematic search:

  1. 1. Define you topic area (ex: borderline, song-writing, palliative care)
  2. 2. Find suitable keywords (the ex. above may be used again, put think of other possibilities. Inspiration may be found by looking into the keywords field of any reference you find – or looking into different thesauruses.
  3. 3. Use the technique described above (3-5). Print out selected results. Describe problems you have met; discuss them with your teacher.
  4. 4. Ask yourself our your librarian, whether the Journal/Book is available.

Find it, order it – or go to Uncover or other relevant sources.

EXCERCISES FOR OTHER LITERATURE DATABASES (Uncover, RILM, Psyclit…):

1.-2. as above. Follow the instructions given by the database on your monitor.
