PubMed requires the following database definition in config.txt:
ProxyHostnameEdit www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov$ www-ncbi-nlm-nih-gov
# dx.doi.org provides linking Nature, Springer, Wiley, and others
# linkinghub.elsevier.com provides linking to Elsevier and ScienceDirect
Find 'https://' + window.location.hostname
Find 'https://' + window.location.host +
Replace 'https://^swww.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov^' +
The MyNCBI feature in PubMed uses https which requires the SSL configuration on your EZproxy server.
PubMed requires the lines up to
DJ static.pubmed.gov to work properly and the Find/Replace lines, although you can modify the URL line to point to your own holdings URL if relevant.
The lines between
DJ static.pubmed.gov and the Find/Replace lines are for linking hosts that are used to link from PubMed to content held in licensed databases. You may omit the linking host lines if they are not relevant to your needs.
The linking lines for EBSCOhost that appeared in earlier definitions of PubMed were removed since the standard definition for EBSCOhost contains everything needed to insure that links from PubMed to EBSCOhost will be handled correctly.
Optional: Host name for Wolters Kluwer licensed resources. For proxied access to WK resources from PubMed, you may need to add this host name to your configuration:
Note: If you add this host name, it must precede the following line, which must always be the last line of the stanza:
If you discover additional hosts that are required with PubMed, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
