What is a Connection File?

"A connection file contains all the information necessary to connect to, search, and import references from an online database or online library catalog. Each connection file represents a different online database (such as the Library of Congress or PubMed from the National Library of Medicine).
The connection files are located in the Connections folder in your EndNote folder. You can view all of the available connections by choosing Connection Files from the Edit menu and selecting Open Connection Manager."
