Getting Full Text Articles

ACOM puts the ACOM Article Linker button in databases like PubMed to allow linking directly to the online full text if ACOM licenses the journal. 

  • Access PubMed through the library website:
    • Use the search box or the link in the "Search!" box (a link to PubMed is also in the Databases Quick Links menu):

  • Once you get to the article citation/abstract, look for the blue ACOM Article Linker button: 

  • If ACOM licenses the journal, you will be asked if you would like to access Full Text.

  • Login with your ACOM Credentials.

  • You will be linked directly to the full text. 

  • If ACOM does not have the journal, you will have the option to search for the article on Google Scholar and to request a copy of the article through Interlibrary Loan.

  • You will need to create an account the first time you use this service.

  • Once you log in to your account, the request form will populate for you.  All you need to do is click the submit button.

  • Once the library processes the request, you will receive an email to log in to your account to retrieve the article.
