Once you've completed all the steps of your search, you're ready to look at your results. PubMed originally presents your results in short format. The information here includes the author, the title of the article, and the source (journal title, volume and issue numbers and dates, and page numbers). This is the minimum amount of information you need to retrieve the article. However there is more information available to you. To view a detailed record, click on the title of an article you're interested in.
If the abstract gives you the option of linking out to the full-text (there will be an icon in the top right hand corner of the screen) and it is a journal that the Library has electronic access to then you can retrieve the article directly on your computer. If there is not a link-out icon, you can check the Serials Database to see if it is available independent of PubMed.
If the article is not available electronically, it may be available in the Library in print format. Check the Serials Database to see if the Library has a subscription to this journal.
If the Library does not have a subscription to the journal (either in print or electronically), you can still get the article through Interlibrary Loan.
