How to get the PDF-file inside and outside the collection of the library
(Download the PDF to make use of the clickable LINKS and IMAGES in the Infographic!)
The Get-it! button is presented in almost all our scientific bibliographic databases, like Pubmed, Web of Science etc.
To see the button, ALWAYS start using PubMed or any other database, e-journal or e-book via our website: www.rug.nl/cmb
Use the DOI-link presented in each PubMed-record, if you think the Get it!-button is not working properly.
Using the Eduroam wifi inside the UMCG, will get you access to the PDF without having to use the library proxy
login! On a collection size of 50.000 online journals, there is always a small amount of ongoing issues. Please contact us, if you notice something is wrong (firstname.lastname@example.org)
No matter where you are online, this button will take you from the so-called PAYWALL, directly to the PDF, with a push of the button (via the library proxy-login)
Details on how to install the CONNECT-button are in this manual.
Simular to the CONNECT-button, but the Google Scholar button also searches for all possible other available PDFs out there of the same publication.

If all else fails, you have the option to consider using Sci- Hub. There is however a big BUT! There is a risk in using this "service". In many countries the use of Sci-Hub is considered as an "illegal act", as if involves content protected by copyright laws. As library, we can not advice the use of Sci-Hub, but research shows the use is worldwide ánd substantial. Use at your own risk.
