Hi Jessica,

Here is a copy of the message that I sent to the medical librarian's listserv.
 It went to over 1900 list participants.  One person,  alreasdy a subscriber
to Natural Standard, emailed me and was pleased to hear of the availability of
the tweak.

Have a great day!

Linda

All,

We recently subscribed to Natural Standard, a database of infomation on
complementary and alternative medicine.  One of the features of the
database
centers around bibliographies on each modality/herb/etc.  and links to
PubMed
abstracts of the articles.

Through contact with their IT people, we found that they were able to
setup a
tweak that allows the PubMed link to come through our institutional
PubMed
access.  So now, if we have access to the full text of the article
referred to
in the biobliography, any patron that clicks on the abstract link gets
right
to our PubMed and can click on our Linkout button to get to the full
text of
the article.  This is really nice -- it closes the loop between the
references
in Natural Standard and our full text documents.  Natural Standard is
offering
to make this connection for any libraries that use Natural Standard and
PubMed
linkout to manage their full text access -- see below for the contact
info.
It's so nice to see a vendor that is responsive to requests for tweaks
like
this!

In terms of "Linkout parameters",  I think that all they need is the url
for
your institution's access to PubMed.

Cheers!

We are thrilled to make the "LinkOut tweak that we made for you
available to

"LinkOut parameters, I will coordinate with Chris to make it happen for
them.
