What is "Find @ OHSU"?

The OHSU Library has a service called Find @ OHSU

What is this "Find @ OHSU" button?
It is a Link Resolver/OpenURL service that takes you from an article citation in a database to full text available in the OHSU Library’s collections. The “Find @ OHSU” button will provide links to as many access points as possible making it easier to find full text.

What does the button do?
If you search a database that has been set up to work with our link resolver, you’d see this button. Click the button and a new browser window will open. If we have access to the article it will take you directly to the pdf page whenever possible or at least take you to the publisher's website. If we do not have immediate access a page will open allowing you to request the citation through our Get It For Me service.

Sometimes when I click a link to full text, I am taken to the journal home page. Why can't I go directly to the article?
In most cases, full text links go directly to the article. However, some publishers do not allow direct linking to articles, so you have to navigate through the site to find the article you want.

Which databases offer the Link Resolver/OpenURL service?

  • EBSCOHost
  • Ovid
  • Google Scholar
  • PubMed
  • ScienceDirect
  • Scopus
  • And more

Is Link Resolver/OpenURL service available from off-campus?
Yes. You can access the link resolver from any workstation with an Internet connection. However, many of our resources are restricted to OHSU faculty, staff, and students only. If you click a link to one of these resources from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in.

What if the Link Resolver/OpenURL service determines that OHSU Library does not own what I'm looking for?
You will then have the option to request what you need through our Get It For Me service.
