Find It! Service Outage

The Dykes Library Find It! service FindIt! buttonand the E-Journal Finder will not be available starting Friday, February 8, 2019 from 7pm for up to 24 hours while our vendor performs system maintenance.

Databases such as ClinicalKey, Access Medicine, and UpToDate will be unaffected. Similarly, you will be able to access full text links in other databases such as CINAHL or GoogleScholar if the content is linked to directly. To access these databases you may browse our Databases List.

If you need to locate articles that depend on these services you may attempt the following workarounds. Be aware that these may not work in all situations.
  • In PubMed, you may use the full text links provided by the publisher or the DOI link. For example: 

  • Search for the article within GoogleScholar or any of our other databases in case they link directly to the full text content.
Thank you for your understanding and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

PubMed lookup service temporarily unavailable

The PubMed ID (PMID) lookup service is temporarily unavailable. Because of this, our FindIt! button is unable to use PMIDs to connect to the full text of articles. When this happens, you will be redirected to our Citation Linker page where you can still use information other than the PMID such as journal title, ISSN, volume, issue, or DOI to find if an individual article is available in our collection.

Workaround in PubMed

If the citation displays a DOI link or publisher link you may click either of these and it may connect to the full text. This will work if we have access to the content and you are on campus or have already authenticated to our proxy server as described on our Remote Access Guide.
