Full-Text Made Easier: The WebBridge Link Resolver
Since it was launched in May, use of the Library's WebBridge Link Resolver has exceeded all expectations given it was introduced just as the spring semester ended. For those who are new or returning from break, perhaps the greatest benefit of this service is that it lets you check available resources for an article directly from the citation.
Link resolver-enabled databases should be accessed through the Online Resources list from the Library's web page. This feature is available in all EBSCOhost databases (CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, etc.), Ovid, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source, RefWorks, Scopus, Web of Knowledge, and Web of Science. The link resolver is also available in PubMed, but you should follow the special link to PubMed available on the Library's web site.
When searching any of the above databases, look for the "LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text" icon:
When you click it a new tab or window will open displaying any available resources for that article:
If there are no available resources, you will have the opportunity to request the article through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan service. The link resolver also makes getting these articles easier than ever: once you've logged into ILLiad all of the information for the article will automatically be filled in for the ILL request.
More information about the WebBridge Link Resolver is available in this handout or through the LibGuides Link Resolver Help page. For assistance with this or any of the Library's resources, please contact a Reference Librarian at the Isché Library (504) 568-6102 / (504) 568-8339, or at the Dental Library (504) 941-8158.
