Unlike the majority of our databases, PubMed does not know to display the Get VText button simply because you are on the campus network or are using Off Campus Sign In. Instead, you must tell PubMed you are affiliated with Virginia Tech by starting your search using our custom URL.

Virginia Tech's link to PubMed includes the necessary parameter [the holding part at the end is our custom part of the link].

You could also attach   ?holding=vtvmlib    to the end of a PubMed URL to have Get VText appear.
