UC E-Links not working with PubMed (4/4/07) – RESOLVED

** update ** this issue has now been reported as resolved.  We have done a little spot-checking and we’re able to get to full text, Roger, and Request screens normally.  Please let us know if you find anything amiss! – 4/7/08 

UC E-Links is currently not working with PubMed – it’s not picking up any data about the citations, so no links to full text or print holdings are showing up. The problem is at PubMed’s end and the folks who run UC e-Links are working with the PubMed technical group to solve it. In the meantime, here are two workarounds:

1. Although PubMed is our preferred interface, we also have access to the MEDLINE database via the ISI Web of Knowledge interface at http://isiknowledge.com/medline. The UC E-Links are working there, including Request.


2. Use PubMed for searching and use our catalog Roger, to determine whether we own the items. You can open PubMed in one browser window or tab and the Roger journal search page (http://roger.ucsd.edu/search~S2) in another window/tab. Search for journal titles in Roger to see if we have the item electronically or in print.

If you run into an item in PubMed and you can’t tell if we have it, please contact us for help.
