Third Iron Releases LibKey Link for PubMed

LibKey Link adds one-click PDF from PubMed to dramatically simplify workflow and simplify user experience

ST. PAUL, MN, April 10, 2019 — Third Iron, LLC, a leading information technology company developing innovative services for libraries, publishers and their users, announced the availability of LibKey Link for PubMed.  PubMed is the world’s leading biomedical database used by millions of researchers around the world.  LibKey Link enables medical libraries to add one-click access to PDFs from both subscribed and Open Access sources to expedite researcher workflow and simplify access.

“Researchers overwhelmingly prefer solutions that save time,” said Kendall Bartsch, CEO at Third Iron.  “Over the past year hundreds of libraries have been using LibKey Discovery to add one-click access to PDFs in their discovery services.  We see from the data how popular this feature is.  LibKey Link further extends how libraries can better meet researcher needs.”  President and Chief Librarian John Seguin continued, “It has long been recognized that the steps required to get to content are time consuming and confusing, a common break point in the research process.  LibKey Link simplifies the user experience, keeping the library at the center of the user journey.”

LibKey Link organically integrates into a PubMed via a unique URL used in a library’s LinkOut setting.  There is no need to install a browser plug-in and LibKey Link works with any web browser.  Installation is simple and Third Iron has published easy to follow steps.  More information can be found at
