EBSCO Databases Now With Direct Access in UMHS LMS

Now UMHS Faculty and students can enjoy direct access to the EBSCO databases once they are authenticated to the UMHS LMS! For ease of access to these valuable databases, the credentials have been embedded into the LMS. Of course this seamless generic login doesn't allow individual students and faculty to do everything that using your personal login does, but its convenient for quick lookup!

Your personal MyEBSCO login is still required if you wish to:
  • save your search history and preferences
  • organize you reearch with folders
  • share your folders with others and view other's folders
  • download ebooks for offline reading
  • download the DynaMed Plus database to your mobile device for offline reference
  • create email alerts and/or RSS feeds 
  • gain access to your saved research remotely

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.
