Beginning on June 10, PubMed’s full-text links to Himmelfarb Library’s collection have changed:
- Find It @ Himmelfarb links have been upgraded to default to PDF article delivery, if available.
- Find It @ Himmelfarb links connect users to full-text articles and to Documents2Go (interlibrary loan and document delivery).
- Full-Text @ Himmelfarb links will no longer be available.
Find It @ Himmelfarb links display on each item in PubMed and can be used to access full-text articles. Courtesy of a new integration provided by Himmelfarb’s Browzine implementation, Find It @ Himmelfarb links first check for an available PDF; if a PDF is available, it will be delivered to the user immediately. If a PDF isn’t immediately available, Find It @ Himmelfarb links provides options for full-text access, or the option to request the article via the Documents2Go system in cases where the article isn’t available from Himmelfarb.
Full-Text @ Himmelfarb links have been retired for several reasons. Most importantly, the National Library of Medicine is discontinuing this service later this year. In addition, this linking system is incompatible with Himmelfarb’s new library systems, launched in conjunction with the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) last summer, so the collection data which provides these links is increasingly dated.
