    • Pubmed is a search engine provided by the National Library of Medicine. It includes the bibliographic database Medline. “ MEDLINE is the NLM's premier bibliographic database that contains references to journal articles in the life sciences with a concentration on biomedicine.  A distinctive feature of MEDLINE is that the records are indexed with NLM's Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). The database contains citations from 1950 to the present , with some older material. “ ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query/static/overview.html#Introduction ) While primarily a citations resource, searches in PubMed can be limited to locate full-text articles from publications freely available on the web including the National Library of Medicines’ PubMed Central journal archive.
    • PubMed can be searched at http://www.pubmed.gov/ Before entering a search select
    • Check the box next to “Links to free-full text”. Enter the search term and then press Search.
    • From the results list select the Free article in PMC link.
    • Select the publisher’s icon to view the journal site. The article citation and abstract screen appears (if available).
    • The publisher’s site provides access in a variety of ways. In this case the researcher may view the article in an Acrobat .pdf file.
      • Pros & Cons
      • Pros
      • The articles are from professional or peer-reviewed publications.
      • This method can provide the searcher with immediate access to full-text articles.
      • Cons
      • This search eliminates many important articles found in PubMed.
      • Leaves the researcher dependent on a small sampling of relevant resources. This can be frustrating.
      • While the list of full-text publications found in PubMed Central is growing, the set is small compared to the vast amount of literature produced.
      Consult with a librarian, they can help you find further resources for your research.
