Welcome to the new Ascension Genesys Medical Library website! We hope you find the layout, resources attractive and helpful, and the TDNet Discovery Tool an easy point-of-entry for accessing all e-resources Ascension Genesys Medical Library has to offer through a single search. Discovery searches will save users time and ensure best results from various resources, without searching in multiple places. Your searches will also go through reputable open access databases such as PubMed.
The landing page is a live site. Full access to many of the resources indexed and provided through this site may only be available while onsite at Ascension Genesys Hospital or through a VPN.
Using the Discovery Tool
Discover Search: In Discover Search, simply type your keyword or topic into the search box, and the most relevant results will appear for your research. Explore a variety of content from journals to e-books. With easy filtering options on the left side, you can narrow your results by date, resource type, subject, publisher, full text, etc. to find exactly the information resources you need.
Advanced Search: In Advanced Search, combine various drop-down options with Boolean operators. As you build your search, the search syntax will appear within the search box. To complete your search, select Search.
Using Citation Matcher
The Citation Matcher is an exact article finder. The Citation Matcher is used when searching for a specific article and requires enough information to locate it accurately. If you know DOI or PMID of an article you are searching, you can enter in the Citation Manager search box or you can expand Citation Manager, and enter Title, Author, Journal, etc.
Once you have entered enough information to uniquely identify one single article, select Match to bring up the result. You will be presented with a window offering you various methods of accessing the item.
Clicking on any of the Read Article links will bring you to a page from which you can access the full text of the item. In the event the full-text article is not available, you may be prompted to complete and submit a Document Delivery form to request access.
