What is LibKey Link?

LibKey Link integrates with PubMed to provide one-click access to the full text of articles found in PubMed. To take advantage of LibKey Link you must access PubMed through the links on the libraries' websites. 

Like with the other LibKey products, if full text is available through the libraries' subscriptions, it can be downloaded immediately. Otherwise, the user is offered options for requesting the article from their institution's interlibrary loan system.

In our implementation you will see our link resolver button (Get it! button) just as you do now. If a library-licensed PDF is available, you will bypass the usual second page with options for online availability, and go straight to the PDF.
