Search the journal literature


PubMed is the US National Library of Medicine's free search system for health information. The primary component of PubMed is MEDLINE, NLM's premier database for the biomedical literature. In addition, PubMed contains a few smaller subsets that are not part of MEDLINE. Access PubMed through Dana Medical Library's homepage or this research guide to connect to UVM Electronic Journal holdings.


UVM Libraries also offers the MEDLINE database via Ovid Technologies. Some searchers consider OvidMEDLINE® to be the platform of choice for complicated searches involving the combination of multiple sets and concepts.
