Use Pubget for Quick Access to PDFs

Do you regularly use PubMed? Do you often wish it were easier to view and save the PDFs of journal articles?

Try Pubget -- -- and see how this new tool saves steps so you can devote more time to your research.

Pubget is a search tool for the life sciences that searches PubMed and more. The Pubget search system is very similar to those of PubMed or Google Scholar. The difference is Pubget gets you the PDFs right away! The Pubget results screen shows the actual PDFs of the documents side-by-side with your search results. The Library has worked with Pubget so the pdfs for journals for which the University has licensed access are available (thanks for your help, Sharif!). For maximum functionality, be sure to register with Pubget, creating a personal login and password.

Other Features:
Read the latest issue of a journal:

As a registered user, you'll have the option to set up email alerts

Stash items of interest in Keepers, for quick access to the pdfs in the future (must be a registered user for this feature)
