PubMed’s Single Citation Matcher can help you find the complete citation. If you use Pub Med@UR, it will also link you to the full-text article, when available. Look for the link to Single Citation Matcher under "PubMed Tools" at the bottom of the PubMed homepage. If you can’t find the citation, Ask A Librarian.
