PubMed Tips: Welcome

Why Use PubMed?

PubMed contains more than 26 million citations and can be searched for free from anywhere in the world. PubMed provides access to MEDLINE, a huge database of references to articles published in thousands of biomedical journals. Currently, MEDLINE citations come from over 5,600 worldwide journals in about 40 languages.

The Library offers regularly scheduled classes in using PubMed. We also provide group or individual training sessions at your convenience. The tips in this guide are meant to be used for self-study or as a quick reference
