The Health Professions Library is pleased to announce that you can now search PubMed, the database of biomedical and health resources, and be linked to the full text journal articles of Hunter College Libraries’ collection via the “Find it!” link.
To access this feature, you must first go to Hunter College Libraries’ databases list at: http://library.hunter.cuny.edu/databases/index.php. Select PubMed from the list. (If you are accessing this on a non-Hunter computer, you will be prompted for your Hunter email address and password.)
Perform your search as you normally would. (Stuck? We have some tutorials on search strategies here.) When your results list is displayed, click on the record you are interested in viewing. You will notice the “Find it!” link at the far right. Click on the icon and you will be able to see the electronic full-text availability for that article. If full text is not available electronically, you can try the links to searching CUNY+ (our online catalog), accessing interlibrary loan form (for graduate students or faculty only), or searching other libraries catalogs via WorldCAT.
Note: This “Find it!” feature will NOT work if you initially access PubMed directly on the Internet. You must access it first from Hunter College Libraries’ database page, even if you are on a Hunter computer.
If you have any additional questions about using accessing this new feature on PubMed, please do not hesitate to contact a librarian. (We love questions!)
