A note about running searches in HDAS:
Freely available articles wont be identified as available within an HDAS search (ie you won't get a link unless we have a sub to the journal) - as we can't add individual articles to the link resolver. Therefore if you are doing a coronavirus-related search, you'll need to check separately whether the article is freely available or not.
