Alert: All BC Cancer Library sites and Cancer Information Centres are closed to the public until further notice. We continue to support patients and staff, providing reference, research, document delivery and more from a virtual platform. The library is still monitoring our email and phones during our regular Monday-Friday hours of operation and can still help you.
Use settings to connect to BC Cancer e-journals from search results. Search full article title.
Many BC Cancer computers will already show you links to our e-journals in Google Scholar search results.
If you do not see links in Google Scholar to FullText@BCCA or FindIt@BCCA, you can click the three line menu to add BC Cancer to your visible links. An account or log in is not needed.
PubMed Full Text Links
Step-by-Step: Connect PubMed to the BC Cancer Library journals
New PubMed does not automatically find full text links from BC Cancer Library. Check if you are logged into a personal account at the top right:
Log in or create a personal My NCBI account. Then go to the My NCBI Dashboard:
From the myNCBI Dashboard, choose Site Preferences:
Look down the list of preferences and click Outside Tool to choose from the alphabetical list of institutions.
You may only link to one institution in PubMed (for now). Click the letter B to find and select BC Cancer, then the Save button.
Return to PubMed (link is at the bottom of the page under "Popular"). The BC Cancer icon will now appear when viewing the abstract of any article. This setting will be saved for you on any computer, if you are logged into your account on PubMed.
When the BC Cancer icon is clicked, Full Text Finder will check for our journal subscriptions. If no results are found, you will be offered a form to request an interlibrary loan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Request What You Need
Having trouble finding the full text of something you need?
Request it through our Library's Document Delivery service (email@example.com). Books, book chapters and other documents can be brought in from other libraries.
The BC Cancer library system consists of one central library at Vancouver Centre (VC), and branches in Abbotsford (AC), Kelowna (SAHCSI), Prince George (CN), Surrey (FVC), and Victoria (VIC). All centres have a collection of patient resources in a Cancer Information Centre (CIC), and most centres have a professional collection on site. Professional resources purchased for the CN are housed in the adjacent UHNBC Library.
