Access PubMed using the icon listed in the “Quick Links” on the left-hand side of the Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis Medical Library website - . This link to PubMed provides the link resolver to Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis’ subscription-based/open source resources.

Step 2. 

Conduct your search in PubMed

Step 3.

From the result list, select your desired article(s).

Step. 4.

Select the “Ascension” icon on the right-hand side of the screen.

Step 5.

If Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis has full-text access, users will be linked directly to the full-text article and/or a link to the full-text of the article - i.e. as below in ClinicalKey.

If full-text is not available, users will be notified i.e. the screenshot below. Select the “Request this item” link to be routed to the Library Request Form.
