PubMed: Start Here

Start Here:


"PubMed comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literacture from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central & publisher web sites." - PubMed, 2020

PubMed is one of the best databases to use for biomedical research. In 2020, PubMed updated the layout and appearance of the site, along with improving the ease of use. The layout was a huge change from "Legacy PubMed" which had not changed in many years. 

Dr. Amanda Haberstroh, Liaison Librarian to the ECU College of Nursing has created a series of videos, including the recorded class below, to help users better understand how to do both basic and advanced searching in PubMed. You can view the videos by clicking the links below or using the tabs at the top of this guide:
