Three new “Quick Tours” (short video tutorials) have been added to the National Library of Medicine’s LinkOut for Libraries Training and Educational Resources web page:
- Uploading Icons demonstrates the different ways to upload an icon image into the Library Submission Utility.
- Contact Info shows how to add, edit and delete contact information in the Library Submission Utility.
- Library Info, PrId and NameAbbr explains where to find your library information such as ProviderId (PrId) and NameAbbr, which is the same as your User Name, in the Library Submission Utility. This information is frequently requested by library vendors.
Not using LinkOut yet? Participating libraries can link from PubMed citations to their library’s online journal subscriptions, directly to the desired article. This provides added value to your users and allows them to access needed resources easily and without delay. There is no charge to libraries to participate in LinkOut. For more information, see the FAQ or contact Patricia Devine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
