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.
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.
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.
Update: linking to JSTOR articles is working correctly as of January 7, 2013
Access to any articles listed as being from any of the JSTOR collections when using the WebBridge Link Resolver is currently not working. You can still browse and retrieve articles from the JSTOR journals by going directly to the titles through INNOPAC or the Electronic Journals List.
If you use the WebBridge Link Resolver to check the availability of the full-text of an article from a citation you have saved in your RefWorks account, please be aware that there is a new requirement in order to show any available resources. You now need to have the PMID (PubMed ID) added to the “PMID” field in the citation. There was a change outside of our control that made this necessary in order to see available full-text for the work.
If there is no PMID for the citation, when you click the “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text” icon you will see a link to check the Library’s catalog for the journal or book as well as a link to export the citation to your RefWorks account.
Another change has been made that will help with this new requirement for linking out of RefWorks: when you choose to export a citation to your RefWorks account from the WebBridge Link Resolver screen, the PMID (if available) will be automatically added to the RefWorks citation:
This post provides more information about using the link resolver in RefWorks. Additionally, more tips are available on the WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuides page.
With the recent switch to EBSCOhost as our provider for HaPI (Health and Psychosocial Instruments), a complication has popped up: if you click the “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text” icon you will not find a match for the article. This is occurring because there is a problem with the information sent from HaPI to our WebBridge Link Resolver.
If you click the icon, you will probably see a link to request the article via Interlibrary Loan, even though we may actually have access to that article. The best thing to do at this point will be to search the library’s catalog through the link provided on the link resolver page:
We will update as soon as this problem is resolved. However, if you need any help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.
For those who use Ovid as their preferred choice for searching, there is good news: the WebBridge Link Resolver has been added allowing you to check for the availability of an article through the click of one icon. You will see the “Check Full Text” icon first with the search results summary:
You will also see the same icon when viewing the abstract of any citation. When you click the link resolver icon a new window will open showing any sources where that article is available. If no matches are found, you will have the opportunity to request the article through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan service.
If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, please check out this handout or the link resolver LibGuides page.
Looking for a quick way to get to the article you need? The Libary’s WebBridge Link Resolver can help! Launched in May, the service lets you check the availability of an article directly from the citation.
Look for this icon in the following databases: EBSCOhost (Academic Search Complete, CINAHL, etc.), Scopus, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source, RefWorks, Web of Knowledge/Web of Science, and PubMed. When you click the icon a new tab or window will open showing options where you can retrieve the article.
If you need more information, be sure to check out the previous posts about the link resolver with tips and tricks, the link resolver LibGuides page, or the handout about this service.
Update: As of July 17th, this problem is now fixed but if you have any troubles please do not hesitate to contact us.
Access to articles from Slack titles through the WebBridge Link Resolver is not working correctly. The publisher changed the web address for all of their journals, and as a result if you attempt to follow the link for “Slack Incorporated” from the link resolver, you will see a 404 Page not Found error and will be unable to proceed. A note next to these links indicating the problem has been added.
The affected titles are:
Access to these titles through INNOPAC, the Library’s catalog, or the Electronic Journals List is unaffected by this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are in contact with the publisher and hope the problem will be resolved soon.
For those who use Web of Knowledge or Web of Science, you have the ability to check if an article is available either electronically or in print through the Library’s subscriptions or other resources. Look for the “Check Full Text” icon that is the gateway to the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver.
When you perform a search, you will see this icon with each citation in the search results screen:
You will also see the link resolver icon when you view the abstract or summary of a citation:
Additionally, if you have created a personal account for Web of Science/Web of Knowledge you will see the link resolver icon for all citations on your list of marked records.
When you click this “Check Full Text” icon, a new tab or window will open showing your options to retrieve that article. If it is not available, you will have the opportunity to request the article through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan system.
If you’re looking for any more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, you can refer to this handout or check the LibGuides link resolver page.
If you are a frequent user of Scopus, then you might have noticed a new icon on the search results and article summary screens. This new icon is for the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver service, and it lets you check if an article is available either electronically or in print through any of the myriad Library resources.
When you perform a search, you will see the link resolver icon with each citation on the results screen:
You will also see the icon when you view the abstract or summary of a citation:
When you click the “Check Full Text” icon, a new tab or window opens that provides your options to retrieve the article. If it is not available through the Library’s subscriptions or other readily-available sources, a link will be offered to request the article through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan system.
Looking for more information or tips about the WebBridge Link Resolver? This page from the Library’s LibGuides can help you.
If you use ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source you can check the availability of an article directly from the citation by using the WebBridge Link Resolver. There are two places in this database where you can find out whether the Library has access to an article electronically or in print.
First, when you perform a search you will see a link called “LSUHSC-NO check for full text” displayed next to all citations on the list of search results:
Additionally, you will see the familiar “Check Full Text” icon when you view the abstract or summary of an article:
When you click either the “LSUHSC-NO check for full text” link or the “Check Full Text” icon, a new tab or window will open showing options where you can find the article for that citation. A link will be offered to request the article through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan system if it is not available through any of the Library’s subscriptions or other sources.
If you’d like more tips, tricks, or other information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, please check its LibGuides page.
Are you an avid searcher of CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, PsycInfo, or any of the other EBSCOhost databases available from the Library? Did you know the WebBridge Link Resolver that lets you check the availability of an article from a citation is also available in all of the EBSCOhost databases?
The “Check Full Text” icon is displayed in two places when using any EBSCOhost database. One is with the list of citations you see after you’ve performed a search or are browsing a publication:
The second place you will see the link resolver icon is when you’re viewing the abstract or summary of an article:
Whenever you click the “Check Full Text” icon, a new tab or window will open showing options where you can get the article (electronically or in the Library’s print collection). If the journal is not available through any of the Library’s subscriptions or other sources, a link will be provided that gives you the option to request the article through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan system.
More information and tips are available on the WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuides page.
The WebBridge Link Resolver makes it easy to export citation information to your RefWorks account along with pointing you in the direction of the article you need. Whenever you click on the “Check Full Text” icon in PubMed, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source, Scopus, Web of Science, or any of the EBSCOhost databases (CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, etc.), the new window/tab that opens showing any available sources for that article will always have a link to help you export the citation information to RefWorks:
When you click on the link you’ll be asked to provide your RefWorks Login Name and Password. Once you’ve logged in, you will see a screen confirming the citation was imported successfully.
The link resolver/RefWorks connection is not a one-way street, though. When you’re working with your RefWorks bibliographies, you will see the “Check Full Text” icon with all citations:
Clicking this icon gives you the same ability to check for any available sources for that citation as it does in other databases. However, this process relies upon the completeness and accuracy of the citation in your bibliography and sometimes incomplete citations cause an available source to not display. If this happens, remember you can always check the Library’s catalog or the Electronic Journals List. As a safeguard, interlibrary loan will not display as an option when using the link resolver from RefWorks, but you can always request a resource the Library does not own by using the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan service.
Do you need more information about RefWorks or would like to sign up for an account? This page can help and it also has a link to upcoming RefWorks classes. You can also find tips and information about the link resolver on the WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuides page.
