The F1000 family of products (F1000Workspace, F1000Prime and F1000Research) has evolved as a way to discover, read, annotate, write, and share scientific research and is now known as Sciwheel. This change was effective in April 2020 and does have some implications for our users.

Your Story Matters! Documenting COVID-19 at Duke
Posted On: Monday, April 27, 2020 - 15:57 by Rebecca Williams

COVID-19 has changed and disrupted our lives, at Duke and around the world. On campus, most students have returned home, classes are online, and all events are cancelled.

One Click Access to PDFs Piloted in PubMed
Posted On: Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 13:30 by Beverly Murphy

Have you noticed anything new while searching in PubMed? The Medical Center Library & Archives is piloting LibKey, a product that allows a “one click to PDF” experience in PubMed when users click on the Getit@Duke button.  Based on the Library's holdings and authentication data, this greatly accelerates access to content and minimizes clicks, while ensuring there is no loss in access for the content.

Shorty, we will be retiring the current MedLib Online button in PubMed and will be using LibKey within the Getit@Duke button. We would appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to drop us a line at medical-librarian@duke.edu with an questions or concerns.
