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.
