PubMed LinkOut to Full Text now at UMHS

The PubMed LinkOut service connecting you to an article's full text, now includes the journal holdings of the Anne Ross Library. Follow the link from the Anne Ross Library Home page to the PubMed search interface (link in the left sidebar). Then when you perform your literature search in PubMed, if the article you discover is available in full text from our EBSCOHost  journal subscriptions (such as Medline Complete), you will notice the UMHS logo icon in the top right of the PubMed article citation record. Just click on the icon and arrive at the corresponding  UMHS EBSCO citation record for that same article, along with the link it contains to the full text PDF.

Set up your own, free, MyNCBI account on the PubMed site while you are there, so you can save all your searches, have remote access to LinkOut, among other things!  If you have any questions or need further assistance with this new feature and /or searching the PubMed database, please contact me at the library.
