1. PubMed® and University of Toronto Library holdings

In our October '03 issue we described the importance of the choice of URL or link for searching PubMed. Using either of the two links to PubMed on the Gerstein page, it is also possible to limit search results to U of T holdings.  Here are some ways of doing this.

The simplest way is to change Display from the default Summary to Abstract; this will display all your results in one list with a visual indication of UTL electronic and print holdings.  You will then see citations which are available at U of T as well as those which are not available locally. Your eye will have to do the limiting to local holdings.

A second way:
First, do a search as you normally would.
Then, enter the following in the search box: loprovicautilib[filter] and click Go
Then, select History
Then, taking the set numbers from the History page, combine the appropriate set numbers with an AND.
(The "loprov" means  local provider; "icautilib" stands for the U of T; this string of letters follows the equals sign in the URL used on the Gerstein page; [filter] completes the search syntax.)



This can also be done by combining this statement as a second part of a search as follows:


A third way is to save the set of UTL holdings as a bookmark and combine those results with a new search set as follows:
Type in search box: Loprovicautilib[filter]    and click Go.
Click Details
Click URL
Bookmark and edit the bookmark (or Add to Favorites) according to your browser.
You can then sign off PubMed, come back another time and use the Bookmark/Favorites and then combine the bookmarked results with results of a new search using the History feature as in method 2.  This method has the advantage of only entering the syntax once.
