National Library of Medicine’s Medline: PubMed comprises over 21 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. PubMed citations and abstracts include the fields of biomedicine and health, covering portions of the life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering. PubMed also provides access to additional relevant web sites and links to the other NCBI molecular biology resources.
PubMed is a free resource that is developed and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Publishers of journals can submit their citations to NCBI and then provide access to the full-text of articles at journal web sites using LinkOut.
The direct link is here: PubMed This link is configured to connect you with journal subscriptions from Pratt Library and UC Libraries. This will allow you to see buttons with the library logos that will take you to the full-text article or to the Pratt Library journal list. The public version of PubMed won’t display these buttons for you and you will not be able to access full-text as easily.
