PubMed

The premier journal article citation database for the biomedical sciences

Linking to Articles from PubMed

If you access PubMed from the library's customized URL you will see a purple DMU Library icon. If you right-mouse-click on the DMU Library icon, you can copy the URL for the item you need.

 

For example, for the PubMed record below, the URL is:

http://resolver.ebscohost.com/openurl?custid=7190900&sid=Entrez:PubMed&id=pmid:29045289

The first part of the URL (http://resolver.ebscohost.com/openurl?custid=7190900&sid=Entrez:PubMed&id=pmid:) passes through EZproxy, which will prompt off-campus users to verify their DMU credentials. The second part of the URL (http://linksource.ebsco.com/linking.aspx?ID=2649&sid=Entrez:PubMed&id=pmid:23192710) goes to our Link Resolver, a nifty software that determines whether or not the library has a subscription to the journal. If we do, then you can download a pdf. If the library does not have a subscription, then you will be directed to order the article with our interlibrary loan services, provided you have set up your account in our ILLiad system.
