EndNote X2 (and earlier) importing problem: Year field empty (with a fix)

When importing records with a publication year of 2010 or later, the record in your EndNote library may have a blank in the Year field.

How can you correct this on future imports?

If you use EndNote version X3, the records import the year data correctly.

A patch to fix this problem in EndNote X2 is available from EndNote. You options for earlier version of EndNote are not great, and are detailed in EndNote's FAQs.

If you need help with any of this, please contact the Public Health Library.

24 hour study hall at Moffitt and Doe libraries is back!

Thanks to a generous gift from two Cal parents, the popular 24 hour Study Hall that has become traditional in the Gardner (Doe) Stacks and Moffitt Library during final exams will return this academic year. Budget cuts had made it necessary to discontinue the 24 hour Study Hall, but this wonderful donation from Richard and Lisa Steiny will allow the Library to provide this service once again. Here is an article from the Daily Cal about this (with a quote from a Public Health student!)

Fall finals covers Thursday, December 10 at 8 am through Saturday, December 19 at 5 pm. During this period, the Gardner (Main) Stacks and Moffitt Library will be open 24 hours for students to study; the Moffitt Microcomputer Lab and FSM Cafe will also be open during those hours.

Current information on hours of operation (including Reference Desk hours) for all the UCB libraries is available here.

  3. Select the WiFi Network to which you are connected
  4. In the WiFi Networks window, tap on the arrow to the right of your WiFi network name

PubMed: You may have noticed some changes

The PubMed interface has changed! Much of what you may have been used to has been revised or relocated. Here's a few of the changes:

  • PubMed Tools, such as Single Citation Matcher and Topic-Specific Queries (formerly "Special Queries"), as well as the MeSH and Journals Databases are now located at the bottom of the main search screen.
  • Gone are Citation and Abstract Plus displays; both have been incorporated into the revised Abstract display. Here you will find a citation's MeSH terms, Related Articles, and more.
  • Looking for History, Limits, and field searching? You need to click the Advanced Search link to the right of the Search box to find these.
  • Selecting Send to: and Display options has also changed.

The new interface includes more changes than those listed above. Lots of details, with screen shots included, may be found in this NLM Technical Bulletin article. Please note that PubMed functionality has not changed, only display.
