NCBI is a tool that retains your information and database preferences to provide customised services for many NCBI databases. It allows you to save searches, select display formats, filtering options, and set up automatic searches that are sent by e-mail.


My NCBI includes other features that help you access articles including setting up your Outside Tool preferences for PubMed.

You can set up a My NCBI account by registering here

Setting up your Outside Tool - Easy Access to Articles.

We have created a icon that links out to any full-text articles we subscribe to. This makes accessing articles incredibly quick and easy. All you need to do is set-up your Outside Tool in your NCBI account. 


To set-up your Outside Tool, firstly login to your NCBI account, click 'NCBI Site Preferences’, then click 'Outside Tool' and scroll down & select, 

'Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,Education Centre Library, UK’ & then click ‘Save’. For more guidance open our help guide

Once you've set up the Outside Tool look out for the below icon to access full-text articles in PubMed. (You will need to be logged in to your My NCBI account).

If we don't subscribe to the full-text, when you click n the icon you will be re-directed to an article request form, which will be set directly to us. We will then try & gain access to the full-text for you and send you a PDF version.
