In EndNote, open the EndNote preferences and switch to the Find Full Text sections. Enter for the OpenURL Path.

Enter for the Authentication URL (this make use of the Off Campus Sign In service).

Now EndNote will make use of all standard methods for connecting to full-text documents available from the Virginia Tech Libraries.
