Library Search Help: Finding Full-Text Articles
Off-Campus Access to Library Resources
Mount Sinai faculty, students, and staff may access most of Levy Library's online resources from off-campus.
For Remote Access You Must Use the Library's Links.
Library Links to Popular Resources for Articles
We recommend using the links under Popular Tools such as PubMed and Google Scholar on the Levy Library homepage to ensure access to full text articles when you are either on or off campus.
FIND IT Button
Use our FIND IT button to search for online availability of an article.
The Levy Library FIND IT button appears on every PubMed journal article citation when searching through the library's instance of PubMed. The FIND IT button can be used to search online availability of a full text article. Once you click on the button, you will be taken to the article's record within Research Discovery, where you may click through for full-text.
Buttons to free full-text will usually link you directly to the article.
In the screenshot, free full-text is provided by PMC (PubMed Central), an article repository from the National Library of Medicine.
Sometime the publishers' buttons work, but they may not recognize Levy Library's license agreements. It is usually better to avoid the publisher buttons and use the Library's FIND IT button instead.
In the screenshot, the Elsevier button is from the journal publisher.
Discovery Article Page
Once you click on the FIND IT button, you will be taken to Levy Library's Research Discovery page for the article. Under "View Online", select a full-text option (there may be more than one). You will then be taken to the full-text of the article.
If there are no holdings available, you can submit a request to get the article through ILLiad, our interlibrary loan service. If you have an ILLiad account, you can log in and submit your request. For first time users, please register for an ILLiad account.
