Introducing: Article Linker, RMU Libraries’ latest essential e-Library tool.
You may be using it already and you don’t even know it!
Have you searched any RMU library databases recently?
Have you noticed the “Get It! @ RMU” buttons within your search results?
Have you explored these mystery links?
If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, you have used Article Linker.
Article Linker provides a user-friendly way of locating the full-text of an article, when it is not available in the database you are currently searching. Whenever you do not see a full text option for an article on your results page, click on the “Get It! @RMU” button. This will bring you to a page displaying direct links to one of our database subscriptions or to print locations matching the article. If Article Linker fails to locate the article in RMU Libraries’ collections, a direct link to our interlibrary loan request form is provided.
While the “Get It! @RMU” Article Linker does not expand full-text article coverage, it does provide easier, faster, less frustrating access to everything we do have.
The article linker button appears in a slightly different location, depending on the database you are searching, as different database vendors have decided to display article linker tools in different locations. The article linker button appears (and operates) fairly consistently across all of our databases. If you have any trouble finding or using it, however, please let us know!
