New way to Find It! How to know if we have access to an article.

find it button

If you have ever clicked the “Find It!” button in any of the library’s research databases to find out whether you can access the full text of an article, you have used OLinks. OLinks was a piece of technology that automatically searched all of the library’s resources and told you how to get full text if Thomas Library had it.

The old Find It! with OLinks button took you to this page:

OhioLINK no longer provides the OLinks product. Thomas Library now uses LinkSource to find full text from our other subscription sources.

The new Find It! with LinkSource button now brings you to a page that will look more like this:

If you are provided multiple linking options, start with the first one in the list.
Take a look at the video below to see a demonstration of how to use LinkSource.

It is important to provide any feedback you have on the new process. We have some control over the LinkSource menu, but we need your help to identify ways we can improve it.

Please email or contact your liaison librarian with suggestions or for more information.
