Accessing Full-Text Articles


Look for this "Find It!" button in our databases to access to full-text articles.


When you click on the button, it will either take you directly to the full-text or PDF of the article or you will see a window like this. Just click on the green "Read the Full Text" button to be taken to the full-text. If there are any issues accessing it just contact us.




If the article is not in our collection, then you will see a window that looks like this. Just fill out the form to submit a request to the SHA Library.



Have you ever found a good article on the web but then wondered how to access it? This browser extension is your answer!


This browser extension provides direct links to articles (pdf links where possible) from the SHA Library collection.  It doesn’t matter where you are, the extension automatically knows you are associated with SHA and will allow access to the article.

Install the LibKey Nomad browser extension and when prompted, enter "Saskatchewan Health Authority" as the institution.   There is no other setup required and no user accounts, email addresses or other personal information is collected or stored.

  • A dark blue icon that looks like this will appear to indicate if the full-text PDF is available through the SHA Library. Click on it to download the PDF.
  • A dark blue icon that looks like this will appear if the full-text is not in our collection. Click on it to open up and fill out an article request form and we will get a copy of that article and email it to you. 

The extension works on various publisher sites, PubMed, Wikipedia, and other websites.

Note: LibKey Nomad supports Google Chrome, as well as Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft EdgeBrave and Vivaldi

When searching for articles in Google Scholar, you can see if the SHA Library has access to the full-text.

This can be done by adding the SHA Library to your list of library links in the Google Scholar settings.

  1. Go to Google Scholar
  2. Click on the hamburger button in the top-left corner of the screen
  3. Click "Settings"
  4. Click "Library Links"
  5. Enter "Saskatchewan Health Authority" into the search box.
    Note: Users can select up to 5 different libraries (i.e. University of Saskatchewan, etc.)
  6. Check the box for the SHA Library once it appears and click "Save"

Now if you see the SHA Library link appear in the search results, you can click on it to access the full text.
