Weâve replaced our PubMed holdings icons with FindIt@Tufts buttons in order to more accurately reflect holdings of the Tufts Libraries. The FindIt@Tufts button appears on most of the other databases licensed by Tufts, and now appears on PubMedâs Abstract Display. (Figures 1 & 2)
The FindIt link will attempt to link to the full text of an article directly or via a link to a publisherâs page. Â When FindIt@Tufts cannot link directly to the full text, it takes you to what is known as a resolver page. (Figure 3) This page provides links to our e-Journal providers, shows relevant information if Tufts has any print holdings of the items, allows you to search for the Tufts Catalog record and also links to our document-delivery service ILLiad, which can obtain PDFs of articles Tufts does not own.
Publisher icons often appear next to the FindIt@Tufts button. These icons MIGHT take users on the Tufts network directly to the full text, but if Tufts does not license that publisher, then it will ask you to pay for the article. For those on the Tufts Medical Center network and all computers off-campus, FindIt@Tufts provides the best avenue to the full text.
If you run across a journal that only provides a link to search the Tufts Catalog by ISSN or Title (Figure 4), but you know or believe the library has access to it, please notify us at email@example.com so we can investigate the linking failure.Â We apologize for the inconvenience of this transition.
Reminder: You must always log into PubMed from the Hirsh Health Sciences Library homepage if you are in Tufts Medical Center or Off-Campus. Â Â http://www.library.tufts.edu/hsl/Â (Previous issues where PubMed was not asking you to log-in before use have been resolved.)
Â âBut does it really work?â Â In our sound-bite saturated news media, itâs difficult to discern which health studies demonstrate effectiveness and which studies do not. How do we know when medical news is evidence worth paying attention to – or – when it is just âprint noiseâ?
PubMed Health is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine that was designed to help consumers and clinicians answer the question, âwhat works?â PubMed Health âspecializes in reviews of clinical effectiveness research, with easy-to-read summaries for consumers as well as full technical reports.â It provides information on how to assess the research results as well as how to read health news.
One of the most valuable features of PubMed Health is âBehind the Headlines,â a joint project of the National Health Service and the U.S. National Library of Medicine. âBehind the Headlinesâ evaluates current medical news for accuracy and also describes how medical news stories come to acquire their âspinâ.
Check out PubMed Health â it works!
