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 firstname.lastname@example.org with an questions or concerns.MORE

PMIDs, DOIs, and PMCIDs Oh My!
Posted On: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 16:44 by Brandi Tuttle
Let’s take a moment to demystify these commonly used acronyms. They are all unique identifiers for an article (like a barcode), which can be used to easily link to or find an article online.
A PMID (such as 30256255) is a unique numerical identifier for an article in PubMed. You will notice every article included in PubMed has a PMID under the citation/abstract. You can search this number in PubMed or our E-Journals page to go straight to that particular article.
The International DOI Foundation assigns a unique alphanumeric string to content online known...MORE

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. Browzine allowed you to stay current with the literature by aggregating and organizing information in one place, enabling you to browse, read, and monitor current journals in your subject areas. While access to that resource will disappear, we are here to help you make the transition (or start new habits)!
