Request through a Database

Occasionally while searching for articles within a database, like PubMed or CINAHL, you will find a resource that the library does not have access to. In a case like this you can request the article directly through the database.

When searching in PubMed or another database you'll see a blue HSCLink button. Click there to see if the library has access. If we do you'll be taken to the full text of the item.
