Getting Started with UC-eLinks

What is UC-eLinks?

  • UC-eLinks is a link resolver which allows you to connect to the full-text of articles.
  • When you locate an article in a catalog or database but can only see the citation information and abstract, clicking on will allow you to navigate to the full-text or lead you to the online form where you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan.

Who can use UC-eLinks?

  • UC Merced faculty, students and staff
  • UC-eLinks recognizes users when they are on the campus network or using the VPN from off campus.

How does UC-eLinks work?

  • UC-eLinks is the UC-customized version of SFX, (http://www.sfxit.com/), which uses OpenURL linking technology.
  • Popup blocking software must be disabled, or "http://ucelinks.cdlib.org:8888" added to your list of sites to allow.
  • UC-eLinks is utilized in many, but not all databases licensed by the library.
  • When you don't see the full text for an article, click on UC-eLinks and follow the prompts to the full text.
  • If the article is not available online, follow the prompt to Request this from another library, or from the campus document delivery service.
  • Use your UCM Net ID for your library card/account number (jdoe33) on the request form.
  • Use your UCM email address (jdoe33@ucmerced.edu) on the request form.
