Being able to access medical information quickly has never been more important. Yet for many medical researchers, getting to full text from PubMed and other databases means facing a time consuming and sometimes confusing process of navigating library systems – selecting a source on a link resolver page, navigating different vendor pages, waiting for pages to load, and hunting for a PDF button. It’s a process that requires a number of clicks and takes time. 

Join Third Iron Co-founder and President John Seguin, MLS to learn how LibKey removes these barriers to content wherever medical researchers find information - in PubMed, in library databases, in discovery services or on the open web - by delivering one-click access to PDFs.  In this 55 minute webinar, John will demonstrate the new LibKey services, show how easy they are to use, and share reports from libraries about how LibKey is saving researchers time, improving user experience and making librarians' lives easier by reducing unnecessary help desk and ILL requests. 

Keep your medical library at the center of the research process by removing the barriers to access with LibKey!
