PubMed: Ten Tips

Adapted from the UNC Chapel Hill Pubmed Ten Tips guide.

Retrieving Full-Text Articles

Always connect to PubMed from the UT Health San Antonio library site so you will see the HSCLink button in the abstract display. 

HSCLink takes you directly to available full-text articles. 

If the full text is available online, you will be taken to the journal or database website where you can obtain the full text. Once you click on HSCLink, a yellow banner will appear at the top of the page. If linking is not working correctly, click More Options in the upper left corner. Linking is based on data provided by publishers, so there are some titles with quirks. See our guide for additional information on HSCLink

 

What happens when we don't have access?

When you try to access an article the library does not subscribe to, linking will not work properly. From the link, you can search other databases or request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
