LinkOut provides direct access from article descriptions in PubMed to full-text articles owned by WVU Libraries Morgantown. LinkOut also shows which articles are available in print journals at the WVU Health Sciences Library in the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center. To utilize the LinkOut feature, connect to PubMed through the the Health Sciences Library, SOLE, or WVU Libraries websites.
