Having trouble configuring EndNote Basic and/or EndNote's desktop software? To make the best use of the programs when you're not on campus, consider using UMSL's VPN (details here). If you cannot use the VPN, as an alternative you can use the EZProxy server at http://ezproxy.umsl.edu/login?url= (however, this does not work well with some resources).
