Access from UVMMC

When conducting a search for library materials from UVMMC, it is important to use the library's proxy servers. Using the proxy server will ensure that you have access to all UVM Libraries materials. The links to the proxy server can be found on the library's website, which can be accessed at We recommend bookmarking the library's homepage for easy access.

From the Dana homepage you can access the proxy servers either by selecting the PubMed button or any of the databases listed on the Research Databases page.

Links to the Dana Health Sciences Library's homepage can also be found through EPIC and UVMMC's intranet page, as shown below.


You will be able to tell you are using the proxy server by checking the URL of the database. For example, in PubMed "uvmdmlib" will appear in the URL.

Finding Full Text

When you find an article you want to read or download, click the "Find It @ UVM" button for access options. Note that "Find it @ UVM" may be located and look different depending on the database.

If UVM Libraries subscribes to the article, you will be taken to a page for download and online access options.

Interlibrary Loan Services and Article Galaxy Scholar
