Changes to PubMed / Article Retrieval

     PubMed Changes     

  • The New PubMed interface is the default. The Legacy PubMed interface is going away October 31 2020.
  • LinkOut, the tool behind the "Locate@Darnall" button has changed to Library LinkOut.
    • This should not impact article access, but we want you to be aware-- please report access issues to us so we can look into them. We have staff online from 0700-1630 Monday - Friday, and will retrieve the information you need while researching the access issue.
    • The Locate@Darnall button now takes you to one of the following:
      • The article;
      • A page with the citation and link to the article / journal;
      • Or a page with the citation with a "Request via Interlibrary Loan" button. (Note: That button isn't currently working in Chrome.)
  • We have also implemented a product called LibKey. LibKey is intended to take you straight to the PDF whenever possible. When LibKey cannot take you to the PDF, they will take you to the Print & Electronic Journals linking page as noted above.

Podcast of the Month

This Podcast Will Kill You (Podcast of the Month)

This podcast won't actually kill you, but it covers so many things that can. Each episode tackles a different disease, from its history, to its biology, and finally, how scared you need to be. Ecologists and epidemiologists Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke make infectious diseases acceptable fodder for dinner party conversation and provide the perfect recipes to match.
