library can now register their local document delivery system and their OpenURL-based server with NCBI to direct their users to these systems from PubMed.
Registering a local document delivery system
By default, PubMed will send the order to Loansome Doc. Users may change this by choosing another provider who has registered with NCBI. Institutions that want to direct users to their local document delivery system should register their services with NCBI. For more information, including steps for implementation, please see Document Delivery Service [Note: This link was removed because it is no longer valid (12/27/2007)].
Implementing an OpenURL-based server in PubMed
Either way, users can see these links as icons on the PubMed abstract display if they activate them before they search.
There is an evaluation process to determine if a library should use LinkOut or Outside Tool to implement their OpenURL-based server in PubMed.
For details on requirements and the steps for implementation, please see:
