EndNote offers a Find full text feature which automatically imports the full text of a PDF into the existing references in your EndNote Library. If full text is not found, you have the option to configure EndNote to search through library subscriptions of all three institutions. It may increase your success in finding full text.
First you need to configure the function in EndNote. From the Menu, select Edit, Preferences, Find Full Text, then in the OpenURL Path field insert: https://sfx.techlib.cz/sfxlcl41
Select the reference for which you would like EndNote to locate the full text and right-click on your mouse, then select OpenURL Link, and in the SFX window (see below), select an institution with full text available.
