What is PubMed?

PubMed is a database that indexes abstracts of medical literature making it easier to find items. Please note, PubMed does NOT provide full-text to every article, and Macdonald-Kelce Library does not have access to all journals in PubMed. 

PubMed is a database providing abstracts to articles in medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, allied health, and the pre-clinical sciences; it also indexes articles from the Index to Dental Literature and the International Nursing Index. PubMed is a service of the US National Library of Medicine and includes millions of citations from health and life sciences journals from the present back to the 1950s.

PubMed comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.

Macdonald-Kelce Library Library users can use PubMed to access links to the full text of thousands of articles in subscribed journals. PubMed also links to thousands of open-access articles, either directly via publisher sites or via its PubMed Central repository.
