PubGet – an even faster way to get to full text

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Need the fulltext of an article quickly?  Try Pubget.  Pubget, a new life science search engine, brings you fast access to PDFs.

Pubget doesn’t replace  PubMed or BIOSIS for searching the health and life science literature.  It is a complimentary tool that links you to fulltext directly bypassing abstracts of article.

Pubget works with UCLA Library subscriptions to electronic journals.  When searching, you’ll see PDF icons when fulltext is available.  Clicking on the article titles will display the pdf directly.  When we don’t have access to fulltext online, Pubget will give you the option to “FindIt @ UCLA” .  This will link you to options for finding a print copy in our library or requesting a copy through Interlibrary Loan.  In a few instances, the PDF icons do not display for items that we do own online.  Using the “FindIt @ UCLA” button will provide you access to those resources.

More details about Pubget and it’s special features, like PaperPlane are available on the Pubget website.

“Revealing Hidden Collections” at the Young Research Library

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

There is still time to visit the exhibit “Revealing Hidden Collections,” open through August 29 at the Charles E. Young Research Library.

Junghuhn’s travels through Java

With countless manuscript pages, photographs, surgical instruments, leech jars and ephemeral items, the UCLA Library’s Special Collections contain a wealth of material waiting to be discovered. These materials may be “hidden” for a variety of reasons: people may not realize that the Library owns them, their contents may be uncataloged, or they may be part of a collection that has not yet been fully inventoried.

This exhibit, in the foyer of the Young Research Library, features items from the holdings of the Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library History and Special Collections for the Sciences, Performing Arts Special Collections, and the Charles E. Young Research Library Department of Special Collections.
