The Mental Health Consequences of Links that Don’t Work

Could not access the article “Mental health consequences
of cannabis use”: Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica v. 119
no. 5 p. 411 Year: 20090501. The link to “Get your article from Blackwell-Synergy” does not work. An error code from the other site says
“Error: Entity not found Error Code: 4090”

Thanks for pointing this out. We’ll look into what is going wrong with that Find it @ Concordia link, since we do have the journal Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica available through Blackwell Synergy. I was able to find┬áthis letter to the editor┬áby going to the Blackwell Synergy link on this page from our catalogue, then choosing the May 2009 issue. Here is a direct link: you may need to log in with your barcode and PIN to view the letter if you are not on campus. Sorry for the inconvenience!

If ever you need immediate assistance finding an article, just ask a librarian.

Finding it?

I would love to one day click on “Find it!” and have it work. The articles I click on are most often are articles I need.

It would be interesting to know which journal articles you are having trouble finding. I would suggest noting which articles you can’t find and asking for help at the reference desk. Perhaps we can track a copy down for you. Often we have one or more links for a given article, or the article may be in a print journal and require looking in the CLUES catalogue to check its location.

This video might also help with Find it @ Concordia.

If Concordia doesn’t have a subscription to the journal you need, you can order a copy of the article through our handy and free Interlibrary Loan Service. To do this, you just need to log on to COLOMBO, and click on “create request” on the left hand side of the screen. Once you have copied and pasted in the information about the article you need, it usually arrives within a week or so.

Let us know when you can’t find the articles you need, and we will do our best to help you. If there are certain journals that you think the library ought to have, you can also let your subject librarian know.
