Web of Science Update

Web of Science has a new interface and some additional features. Their Getting Started video (4min) provides a helpful overview.


Author Beamplots present a new way to view researchers’ scholarly output.
For example, Dr. Mario Castro:
The URLs of article citation information can be copied and shared. For your link to work off-campus you will need to use our proxy generator to add our proxy prefix.
Copy the URL when viewing an article to share the link.

Sharable query links allow you to easily share your search strategy with your collaborators.
New Copy Query Link button allows you to easily share a link to your search.

You can still access the legacy version if desired.
Link to classic Web of Science interface is in the Products menu.

Find It! Service Outage

The Dykes Library Find It! service and the E-Journal Finder will not be available starting Saturday, May 29, 2021 at 6pm for up to 24 hours while our vendor performs system maintenance.

Databases such as CINAHLClinicalKeyAccess Medicine, and UpToDate will remain online and available.

To access full text content, please try the following workarounds.

  • In PubMed or Web of Science, try the full text links provided by the publisher instead of our blue KUMC buttons. For example:

  • Search for the article within Google Scholar 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.
