New search option added to link resolver

Every now and then there is a hiccup in the process by which information goes through a number of channels in order to get you to your article when using the WebBridge Link Resolver from many Library databases. If you’ve seen the dreaded “No DOI found” message, you’ve probably wondered where to go next.

DOI Search Error

We are happy to report we have added an option that now gives you the option to get to the journal where the article you need is published if you see the above screen when attempting to retrieve an article. For those resources where the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is integral to this process, you will now see another link that will bring to to the journal’s site:

Alternate Search Option

If you encounter the “DOI not found” error, just return to the link resolver result screen and click the alternate link to get to the journal or the publisher’s site.

We hope that this will help alleviate some of the trouble that you have getting articles through the link resolver. If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, check out our LibGuide. Also, if you need help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

Link resolver available again in all EBSCOhost databases

We are happy to report the WebBridge LR links are once again appearing in all EBSCOhost databases. If you need a refresher on how the link resolver works, this LibGuide will help.

If you need any assistance with any Library resources, please contact us.

Link resolver not displaying in EBSCOhost databases

The WebBridge LR links are currently not displaying in any EBSCOhost databases, including CINAHL and Academic Search Complete. You will continue to see a link to check the Library’s catalog for all citations in these databases, but you will not see the “Check Full Text” icon:

Cinahl LR No Display

If you do not find a match when clicking the link to check the Library catalog, you can search for the journal or book in the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List to find whether it is available from another provider.

The issue is being investigated but there is no timeline for when the problem will be fixed. If you need any assistance while this service is unavailable, please contact us.

Update: Access Issue

UPDATE: Links to resources and databases are now working correctly, but until the main problem is solved we might still experience difficulties. If so, please use the solution outlined below in the interim.

We’re having issues with all full-text links from our Catalog and from the Link Resolver. Resources cannot be accessed. Patrons who are on-campus can access by stripping out the part of the URL which allows off-campus access. Remove the initial number and dash and .innopac.lsuhsc.edu, so:
http://0-jama.jamanetwork.com.innopac.lsuhsc.edu/issues.aspx becomes http://jama.jamanetwork.com/issues.aspx
Again, this only works on-campus.

We’re investigating if this is related to the campus wide internet crash this morning and hope to have it resolved quickly. Thanks for your patience.

Link resolver now working in Web of Science

The WebBridge Link Resolver is once again working correctly for Web of Science. We apologize for what was hopefully a slight interruption in the service, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any assistance.

Link Resolver Tips: OCLC

Select OCLC databases have recently been configured to work with the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver. If you perform a search in ArticleFirst, ECO (Electronic Collections Online), ERIC, or MEDLINE from the list of available databases in OCLC, you now have the opportunity to check whether the library has access to that particular article or resource.

Once you perform a search for a topic, click the title for the desired reference:

OCLC Article Search Result

 On the subsequent summary screen, you will see the Library’s link resolver icon along with “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text:”

OCLC LR

After clicking on the icon or text, you will then see a page with any available sources for the citation:

OCLC LR Sources

If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, a handout and LibGuide are available.

Link resolver working for Google Scholar

The problem that was preventing the links to the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver from displaying in Google Scholar has been solved. In addition, you can now find us under the “Library Links” if you wish to configure the link resolver to work when using the site  off-campus.

If you need more information about how to configure the WebBridge Link Resolver to work with Google Scholar, please refer to this post about Google Scholar and the link resolver.

Link resolver not available in Google Scholar

The Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver is currently not available when searching Google Scholar. This problem is affecting all libraries that use WebBridge. When on campus you will not see the “Full-text at LSUHSC-NO” link next to citations nor are you able to add us when configuring off-campus settings through the “Library Links” list.

Until this problem is solved, there are a few options to check whether we have full-text access to a journal, book, or other work referenced in a citation:

We will update as soon as we have more information about this problem, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any assistance.

Link Resolver changes for Web of Knowledge/Science

The recent redesign of Web of Knowledge and Web of Science has also changed where the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver is found in these databases.

When you first perform a search, to find out whether the Library has access to the full-text of an article click on the “Full Text” button found below the citation:

WoS Citation Summary 1

You will then see a smaller window with the WebBridge Link Resolver icon:

WoS Citation Summary 2

If you are viewing the abstract of a citation, look for the turquoise “Full Text” button above the citation:

WoS Abstract View 1

When you click this button a small box will once again appear with the WebBridge Link Resolver icon:

WoS Abstract View 2

Additionally, the “Holdings” link searches INNOPAC, the Library’s Catalog.

If you need more information, please check the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuide or contact us if you need any help.

 

 

 

 

 

Scirus shutting down

Scirus, Elsevier’s free search engine, will be shutting down in January 2014. In a message to users, they stated no more content will be added starting immediately.

We will keep the links active for the WebBridge Link Resolver until Scirus is completely discontinued.

Link resolver now back for Scirus

Update: As of June 27th, the link resolver is once again available for use with Scirus.

June 11th: The WebBridge Link Resolver is currently not available through Scirus. The problem is being investigated and will hopefully be fixed soon.

Link resolver tips: Scirus

The latest addition to our lineup of databases and sites configured to work with the WebBridge Link Resolver is Scirus. However, you must set up the preferences in Scirus to show the link resolver icon whether you are searching the site on- or off-campus.

First, select “Preferences” from the Scirus main page:

Next, under the “Library Partner Links” change the radio button to “Enable,” select “L” from the alphanumeric list, and then select the entry for “LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans Libraries” :

Once you’ve made these changes, click the “Save Preferences” button:

The WebBridge Link Resolver icon will display only for journal articles as long as you do not clear the cookies from your browser:

If you need any more information about the link resolver, please check out the WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuide or our newly-updated link resolver handout.

Link resolver tips: Google Scholar

If you use Google Scholar, you’ll be happy to know that it now works with the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver!

When on campus, you will automatically see a link for “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” next to the citations it has determined we can access:

However, unlike other databases and sites where the WebBridge Link Resolver is available, when you click on the “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” link you will see the following offering you two choices to link to the full-text of the citation:

As a result of the different information that Google Scholar sends, the first link searches PubMed and will use the link resolver to get to the article, whereas the second link will search for a DOI and link through CrossRef. In either case, if you do not find a match you will still have the opportunity to search INNOPAC, the Library’s online catalog, for the journal or book.

To configure Google Scholar to display the “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” links when searching off-campus, you will need to start with going to the Settings:

Then choose “Library Links” in the left column and perform a search for LSU, LSUHSC, Louisiana, or New Orleans to find the library under the name “LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans Libraries” and check the corresponding box to select it:

Then click “Save” and the “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” links will appear on Google Scholar as long as you don’t clear the history or cookies from your browser. Additionally, off-campus access will require your barcode and PIN to access articles.

If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, a handout is available as well as a LibGuide highlighting tips and tricks for using the service.

Link Resolver Tips: My EndNote Web

Did you know you can access My EndNote Web through the Library’s subscription to Web of Knowledge/Web of Science? Start by going to any of the links to Web of Knowledge/Web of Science at http://www.lsuhsc.edu/no/library/ss&d/data/wok.html. Then look for the My EndNote Web link at the top of the page:

 

To log in you can use your existing Web of Knowledge user i.d. and password; if you do not have one, you can easily create a new account. Once you’ve entered this information, My EndNote Web will launch in a new tab or window and you’re all set to start managing those references! The tabs across the top will guide you through adding new citations and organizing your bibliographies:

 

 

There is also a handy link in Web of Knowledge/Web of Science to export the information from selected citations to your My EndNote Web account:

My EndNote Web also works with the WebBridge Link Resolver giving you the opportunity to check whether that article is available in the Library’s print or electronic collections. Look for the “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text” icon next to each citation you’ve added to your account:

 

 

A new tab or window will then open showing the options you have to retrieve the article. If you need more information about the link resolver, this handout will walk you through the process and the Link Resolver LibGuides page also has tips you can use.
