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.

Browzine Access Ended August 31st
Posted On: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 - 11:21 by Brandi Tuttle

Access to the handy resource, BrowZine (think "browsing"), will be ending this month.
