PubMed links to UNCG full text are not working

Normally if you click into a PubMed link on our library site, you should be able to click into PubMed results and see a UNCG logo that leads to our subscription (or an Interlibrary Loan button in case we don't own that item).

During our link resolver upgrade, these links have stopped working!

If you use PubMed, here are some workarounds.

A) Type the journal title into the Journal A to Z list. If we own the year that you need, follow links to the article

OR

B)  Shortcut - paste the article title inside quotation marks in the red search box like this
"Serving size guidance for consumers: is it effective?"

Usually you'll see an article record.  Click "view now" to get into full text, or click into the title to see a call number or an Interlibrary Loan link in case we don't own this article.
