How to update your holdings in PubMed and Google

You will need to change the base URL in your systems such as Google Scholar and PubMed as well as inform your provider of any third party system of the change to your base URL.

When moving your services there may be an unavoidable gap in linking to full text via third-party system providers while third-party system providers update their files.

For Google Scholar and PubMed you will need to send Wolters Kluwer the following information to the address NHS_Support@wolterskluwer.com adding Google or PubMed or Google and PubMed to the subject line:

  • For Pubmed: your PubMed linkout code and LinkOut Provider ID; you may need to ask PubMed for this or find it here. If you use the PubMed Outside Tool (Otool) you will need to manually update the base URL.
  • For Google Scholar: the <electronic_link_label> you have configured in your institutional_links.xml and the IP address (if any) that you have configured in the same file. You will also need to ask OCLC to stop hosting the Google Scholar files as soon as possible as it can take 1-2 weeks to process the change.

Wolters Kluwer will make available holdings files for use in services such as PubMed and Google Scholar and these will be updated on a weekly basis.

As with the current arrangements, it is your responsibility to contact third-party system providers to set up access to content via these systems. You will also need to manage your own use of the link resolver in these systems. Support for this feature from Wolters Kluwer is in the form of support documentation only.

Please note: The set up of links using the base URL in third-party systems is at users’ own cost and risk. Any subscribed content linked to from third-party systems must only be accessed and used in compliance with the publishers’ licensing terms. The publishers of the content to which you are linking are not obliged to support any links placed in third-party systems created using the base URL
