PubMed at the UW

Getting the Full Text of an Article

1. Click the UW Check for Full Text icon 

This icon will take you to a UW Libraries Catalog page that will list both online and print availability. When the catalog interface comes up, click the journal vendor name highlighted in blue to be redirected to the article (you may need to browse for the specific issue).

You can also check for availability on the eJournals tab on the HSL home page.  

2. Order a copy of the article if you can't locate UW holdings

If there is no journal vendor name listed in the UW catalog, click on the "Articles (1-2 days)" link. UW Libraries will deliver the article to you via email free of charge. If this option is not visible, you may need to click the "Log in for all services" button and sign in with your UW NetID.

Fees are waived for interlibrary loans and scanned copies of journal articles to current UW students, faculty and staff.

NOTE:  Vendor buttons will usually present an option to pay for an article unless it is a free service such as PMC (PubMed Central) items.
