Users have reported that the connection file dated 6/6/03 that shipped with EndNote’s Version 7 release does not work for the Melvyl Catalog.  However, the Melvyl Catalog connection file dated 6/8/04 available on the EndNote Connection Files web page (http://www.endnote.com/support/enconnections.asp) does work.  In order to use this file you must first delete the connection file that was included in Version 7 and uncheck this connection file in the Connection Manager before you FTP the new connection file from the EndNote Connection Files web page.

In your EndNote’s “Connections” folder, delete the U of California connection file and uncheck the connection file in the Connection Manager.  Then, FTP the new U of California connection file from the EndNote Connection Files web page. For this connection file, the Database name is “Library Catalog,” the Information Provider is “University of California,” and the date is 6/8/04.

After you have saved the new U of California connection file into EndNote’s Connections folder, you will need to open the Connection Manager and check the new connection file.  You should then be able to connect to and search the Melvyl Catalog without difficulty.

Anyone having difficulties connecting to the Melvyl Catalog, regardless of their EndNote version, should delete their existing connection file and FTP the new one as described above.
