About SHU Links

SHULinks logo 

is a software product which automatically links together online databases. It takes information from one resource and uses it to build links to other services that have related content.

For example, we can link results of searches in indexing databases to the electronic journals which contain the full text of the articles found.

Whenever you see the button simply click on it to see a menu of options. These options may include links to the full text of an article.
