American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) titles not displaying correctly in EDS and Full Text Finder

Two eJournal titles from the American Veterinary Medial Association are not displaying correctly when searching EDS or when using our Full Text Finder button in other databases like PubMed.




We have contacted our provider to fix the issue.

We do have access to both these titles. The direct links are below.

We will update this blog when the issue is fixed.
