PubMed contains links to full text of articles in journals licensed by HSLIC or University Libraries. Articles without links to full text should supply a link back to HSLIC's catalog, where additional access to the article may be available or the item may be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
Find Full Text when using PubMed
Select the desired title in PubMed search results. Then you will see a screen with the title, the abstract, and links to full text. The full text link icons appear in the upper right of the browser window.
Full text icon types:
There are three types of full text icons. These links check for full text access they do not guarantee access. Selecting UNM's icon will give a more accurate representation of accessible material.
IMPORTANT: If HSLIC does not have a subscription to the journal where the article appears you will not have access to fulltext. However, the journal website may ask you to pay for access to the article. HSLIC is not responsible for any purchases made via this method. For alternative access see: Inter-Library Loan.
The publisher icon will direct you to the journal, typically to the specific article, however sometimes you will need to retype the article name in the journal's search bar. If no access is available the publisher may ask you to purchase access, HSLIC is not responsible for any purchase made.
The UNM icon directs you through the HSLIC site to see if full text access is available. If full text is available then you will click “View Full Text” and be directed to the item. If there is not full text access then you will get a message that says “unable to find links to item”.
Open Access Icons:
Open access icons indicate journals where the contents are freely accessible to anyone without a subscription.
The Free in PubMed Central icon indicates that the article is freely available in PMC if you click here.
