When you're not at Highland

Highland physicians and staff who are URMC affiliates can use their URMC Active Directory account (URMC network and e-mail login) to access electronic journals and databases from Miner Library's home page when off site. University of Rochester students have access through their Blackboard accounts.

When you know only part of the citation

PubMed’s Single Citation Matcher can help you find the complete citation. If you use PubMed@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.

When you need the full-text of an article you found in a database

Use Find Text@UR:

After you complete a search, browse through the citations. Click on the red button that says FIND@UR or FINDTEXT@UR.

FindText@UR button

A new window will open. (TIP: This window will only appear if you have allowed pop-ups on your browser. Disable the pop-up blocker to see it.)

In most cases you will link directly to the full-text article. For best printing results, look for a PDF link. (TIP: To print a PDF, always use the printer icon on the PDF toolbar. In the Ovid databases, if the article is not in PDF format, click on the Ovid PRINT PREVIEW link to print the graphics at full size. Use your browser's print command to print.)

If the article is not available online, you will find other options for getting the article in the new window. You can look for a print version of the journal by searching the Voyager catalog. Try clicking on both ISSN and TITLE to do a thorough search.

If you do not find the journal in Voyager and want to order the article through ILLiad, click on Request through Interlibrary Loan - Miner Library.
