What happened to the "find papers at your institution future" in Mendeley?

Unfortunately the link resolver was taken down due to technical connectivity issues.  Mendeley is aware of the issue and is working on a fix soon. 

In the meantime, there is a work-around to getting papers to which we subscribe (as long as they are indexed in Web of Science or available as Open Access documents):

  2. Search for papers by author, title, etc.
  3. On the results screen, If "Get full-text" is available then it will link you to the full-text of the article.
