Important!

Library staff are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, but library services and resources will be operational.  Please make your Cites & Bytes requests by email to medlib@cpsbc.ca or by using the website, if possible. We can receive requests by fax or voicemail. We recommend selecting email as your delivery option for any articles you would like to receive, as mail and meditrans delivery could be delayed. Please refer to the announcements on the right-hand side of the library website for updates.
 

PubMed interface change

PubMed is transitioning to a new interface. When logged in via the College library, teal CPSBC buttons will now appear on every PubMed citation. Click the button and either the article will appear, or you will be taken to a College library order form. We will deliver the article to you if available locally or let you know about other ordering options.

If you receive an "Article not found" error, please send us the citation. Staff are working hard to fix these but may not find every instance before the switch.
