*UPDATE* The links are now working for both the A-Z list and the eLink.

Feels almost like déjà vu all over again. MEDLINE with Full Text is displaying an error page when you try to link in from our A-Z list or via our UBC eLink button button (previous problem was a blank page). The authorities have been contacted. Meanwhile, it’s not a total washout. When you land on the MEDLINE page, you can always click “Publications” (upper left) and browse/search your title there. Stay tuned

*UPDATE* - Links working now.

Somewhere, someone altered all the internal journal IDs for the MEDLINE with Full Text titles (not us, honest!). As a result, links from our ejournal A-Z list and our eLink button go to a mostly blank Ebsco Host page.
If you click on “Publications” in the upper left of that page, you can re-search your journal there. A pain, yes, but we are working to resolve it. Stay tuned.
