Using the Find It Button
When you are searching an index, like CINAHL, Scopus, PsycInfo, etc., buttons display, instead of .pdf or html full text icons, with many of the items in your search results list. Most of them say, “Find it.” PubMed displays a TMC Library Get Full Text button, next to each abstract, rather than in the results list.
Either way, clicking the library button links you to full text provided by TMC Library. Very often, from PubMed, the publisher’s own link will also get you access, though you may need to enter your OpenAthens login at the publisher site. How easy it is to locate that option varies from publisher to publisher.
If “Find It!” doesn’t take you straight to full text, it’s usually because the library has access via more than one source, and you must choose. You are taken automatically to OneSearch, in that case, where full-text options appear under “Available Online”.
Tip 1: Pick the Publisher link, if it’s offered. Tip 2: Browzine may display a direct .pdf link for you in OneSearch. If “View Issue Contents” displays, that’s also a great way to access full text via Browzine.
Occasionally, the library doesn’t have an item you want. OneSearch displays the text, “How to Get It”, with a red Document Delivery/ILL link.
Follow that link to the Document Delivery/ILL login page and sign into (or create) your account. Citation details appear in the order form. If any red-starred (i.e., required) citation data is missing, adding it, if convenient, saves processing time.
