Check for electronic availability

You can check electronic availability of a publication in SmartCat or one of our other databases, like PubMed.

Please check if a publication is actually available by clicking until you see the full text of the publication on your screen. Of course, you can also link directly to an article or e-book ; see the information on 'How to create a reliable link’. Please report any problems via cmb rug.nl .

An article

  • Search for the article, e.g. in PubMed or in one of the other databases.
  • Click the Get-it button
  • Click the button ‘View Full Text’ (if available).
  • Check if you have access to the full-text by actually viewing the article.
  • Now look on the webpage or the opened PDF for a permanent link. See: ´How to create a reliable link´.

A chapter/part of a book

  • Search SmartCat for the book.
  • Sometimes a title appears more than once; choose the copy which states: ‘Held by: University of Groningen Library’ and click the button ‘view online’ (if available). This button is not present when the article is not online available.
