Need an Article? Tweet #MizzouPDF

Found an article online, but aren’t sure how to get the entire article? Did the website ask you to sign in or pay a fee? Want an easy way to request an article while searching on your phone? Need to ILL an article? Request your article via Twitter using #MizzouPDF.

In your tweet, be sure to use an identifier like a DOI, PMID, article title, or any information you have about the article. Including your MU pawprint will make the process faster, but we can private message you back if you don’t want to include your pawprint. With the information you’ve given us, we will send the article through your university email.

It’s simple to do! Here is a good example of how to tweet your article request:

This service is open to current MU faculty, students, and staff.

 

Remember, you can still request articles while in databases like PubMed, Scopus, EbscoHost, etc., by clicking on Findit@MU and selecting “Request a copy”.

Health Sciences Library Wish List 2018: Books

The health sciences librarians  listed 100 of our “Most Wanted” books on the 2018 University Libraries book wish list. For as little as $22, you can help our continued mission of supporting health sciences teaching and research at MU.

To view the full list of titles we would have loved to purchase, please visit library.missouri.edu/giving/wishlist

In spring of 2017, MU librarians created a wish list of over 400 titles that would enhance teaching and research, but that could not be purchased due to fiscal restraints. The response from alumni and friends exceeded our highest expectations. Fifty-six donors purchased 105 books and electronic book collections, totaling $22,270 in gifts.

Don’t see anything here that appeals to you? Let us know what you’re interested in at asklibrary@health.missouri.edu
