As you look through results, you will see hoards of tempting icons. Unless you click on an icon that says “Free” on it, you will be taken to the publisher website and asked to pay $30-40 for the privilege of viewing the article. There is no need to do that. You can check the A-to-Z List from the library home page and access your article that way (I’ll show you that later). Or you can send the citation to me and I can get it in about 1-3 days. If you need a rush on the article for an urgent patient care issue, just let me know, and you should receive it within a few hours.There is no direct cost to the hospital for articles. We contract with UAA and have collaborative agreements with other libraries so aren’t charged for the articles you request. There is no limit on what you can request.
