What is Citation Linker? GOT PMID?

If you have a citation for a journal article from a database, bibliography or a reading list "Citation Linker" can be used to create a menu of online resources where that full-text article may be located in Tulane e-Journals.

  • How do I use the Citation Linker?
Health Science articles are often located by using the Medline databases, such as PubMed or Ovid. If you have a citation from Medline you may enter only the PMID number (in Ovid this is called the UI). If you do not have a PMID number, you may type in a journal title along with other citation information. Click on the GO button to see what options are available.
If the Library does not own a particular journal title you may be directed to the interlibrary loan system, ILLiad. You must register to use this system. English language health science articles are usually supplied within two working days to our Health Science Center users. All the details are not currently transferring to the ILL form, so don't forget to copy and paste the PMID or UI and type in the year of publication before submitting your request.
