RefWorks changes for link resolver

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?รก 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.
