Searching databases, such as PubMed, is a good way to find articles on a particular topic. Once you have located an article from any of our licensed databases you can easily download the full-text directly from the database.

All NYU Health Sciences Library databases will have a button labelled, "Access through NYU HSL" located next to or below each article reference.

Please note that you must use the NYU version of PubMed via the NYU Health Sciences Library's website or atNYULMC intranet for these “full-text” links to appear.

Clicking on the button labelled, "Access through NYU HSL" will open another browser window. If we have the electronic full-text available, you will see the citation listed under the "Full Text" heading. Click on the "Go" button next to the citation to access the full-text through the journal’s website.

If the library does not have the electronic full-text available you may be redirected to our Document Delivery (ILL) service. If not, you may complete a document delivery (ILL) request form by clicking on "Full-text not available. Request this item" or the "Go" button. Fill out the citation information if it is not automatically entered in the form and you will receive a PDF via email. Most requests are delivered within 2-3 business days.
