In order to take full advantage of links to articles in PubMed, it is necessary to access PubMed from the library’s website at http://www.library.uthscsa.edu.
A link to PubMed can be found in the Databases pull-down section of the The Libraries home page, or in the Library Search, Databases section of the page. Although it can be tempting to access PubMed by going directly to its address, http://pubmed.gov, this will bypass the open url linking that librarians have set up for PubMed.
The HSCLink button will either open an article for which the library subscribes for the Health Science Center, or will provide information about how to obtain an article if the library does not have access. This may include populating an interlibrary loan form to obtain the article from another library.
