Search for medical literature on your own, free of charge. PubMed is a World Wide Web retrieval service developed by the National Library of Medicine (NLM). PubMed provides free access to MEDLINE, a database of nearly 9 million bibliographic citations and abstracts in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, health care systems, and preclinical sciences. PubMed also contains links to some full-text versions of articles at participating publishers' websites. PubMed is available at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed.

For those who have not searched PubMed before or want to improve their searching skills, there are many guides which provide information on how to search the database. The National Library of Medicine - Reference Section has created an excellent brochure on how to search the database. The revised and most current edition can be found at the following address. http://www.nnlm.nlm.nih.gov/nnlm/online/pmtri.pdf.
