Google Scholar with library full-text

The library’s Quick Links now features a link to Google Scholar. This link includes the library’s proxy server link, which allows the UNMC full-text searcher to accompany Google Scholar results. When off-campus, you must sign in with your UNMC Net ID, just as you would with other library resources.

To access this special Google Scholar link, go to the Quick Links, which are located on the right side of the library’s homepage, and scroll down to the bottom of the list. Google Scholar is listed under Helpful Tools

Once you are logged into Google Scholar and perform a search, you will notice the UNMC eText link next to most of the results. Clicking that link will search the library’s online journal collection and retrieve a full-text link, if available. If not, an interlibrary loan can be ordered.

McGoogan It! with ebooks

Do you ever find yourself reading a book and wishing that you could hit the ‘find’ key to search across the content? Would you like to search across the content of books and textbooks in the same way that you can search the journals in MEDLINE or CINAHL? If so, the library would like to share a new Ebook and Point of Care Resource Search application. It’s called McGooganIt! It enables you to search across the full text of the library’s ever-growing ebook collection. We are also including a few point of care resources, such as Clinical Pharmacology, Dynamed, and FirstConsult, in the search for good measure.

The new search can be found under the ‘Ebook Full Text: McGoogan It!’ tab on the library home page, under ‘Search Our Collection’.

Your results will look something like the graphic below. Clustered on the left hand side are limiting variables such as topic, author, publication, publication type, publisher, and date.

So, don’t just Google it, McGoogan It!

Thieme E-book collection now available

The library has added access to an new E-book collection. The Thieme Ebook Clinical Collections 2010 and 2011 is funded by the Friends of the Library. It includes over 90 medical titles. The titles can be accessed individually through the library’s catalog and E-book A-Z list or searched simultaneously via the Thieme Clinical Library link in the E-book section of the Quick Links.
