WebBridge Link Resolver: A New Option for Articles
On May 1, 2011, the Library officially launched the WebBridge Link Resolver, providing another avenue to access articles available through Library subscriptions, full-text databases, and myriad resources. The most significant aspect of this new service is that it lets you check available resources for an article directly from the citation.
The feature is currently offered in all EBSCOhost databases (CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, etc.), ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source, PubMed, RefWorks, Scopus, Web of Knowledge, and Web of Science. Look for the "LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text" icon, and when you click on it a new tab or window will open displaying any available resources for that article:
If none are found, you will be offered a link to request the article, book, or chapter through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan system. Also, as with many other Library resources, off-campus access requires a Library barcode and PIN.
Link resolver-enabled databases should be accessed through the Online Resources list of the Library's subscribed databases. Additionally, in order for the link resolver icons to display in PubMed, you need to follow a special link posted on the Library's web site.
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.
