How do I access full-text articles through ADS?

In order to access both the ADS article archive and literature paid for by the Wolbach Library, you must set up an ADS account and designate Harvard as your library. This will enable links to full text when viewing an ADS record.

  1. Create a new account or sign into your existing account.
  2. Set up your Library Link Server:
    1. Go to Customize Settings under the Account menu, and then to Library Link Server.
    2. Click on the "Update" button.
    3. A drop down menu should appear; select "Harvard University Library," then click the "Apply" button.
    4. You should see a line that says "Current Link Server: Harvard University Library."
  3. You can now access full text content via Library subscriptions.
  4. If you come accross an article you need to access but is unavaialble via our subscriptions, please send an email to or use our request form.
