1. Many journals will let you sign up for a free table of contents service. You may not be able to access the articles, but you can see what's new.
2. Check favorite database vendors (such as RefWorks) for individual subscriptions.
3. Use the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) to locate health sciences libraries near you. http://nnlm.gov/. From their site, click on the region, then the state where you will be. You'll see a listing of libraries and contact info. You can also click on Contacts here or on the top of the NNLM home page and find contact informaton for your Regional Medical Library.
4. Check to see if there's an AHEC library near you. Go to the AHEC site. Click on Directories and Maps and then select your state.
5. As always, you can tell us where you're heading and we will try to help you find resources there.
While we suggest that you access PubMed through the Laupus website while you are at ECU (more full text that way) -- you can access PubMed directly from any Internet connection. You will still have access to some full text.
