PubMed LinkOut to Full Text now at UMHS

The PubMed LinkOut service connecting you to an article's full text, now includes the journal holdings of the Anne Ross Library. Follow the link from the Anne Ross Library Home page to the PubMed search interface (link in the left sidebar). Then when you perform your literature search in PubMed, if the article you discover is available in full text from our EBSCOHost  journal subscriptions (such as Medline Complete), you will notice the UMHS logo icon in the top right of the PubMed article citation record. Just click on the icon and arrive at the corresponding  UMHS EBSCO citation record for that same article, along with the link it contains to the full text PDF.

Set up your own, free, MyNCBI account on the PubMed site while you are there, so you can save all your searches, have remote access to LinkOut, among other things!  If you have any questions or need further assistance with this new feature and /or searching the PubMed database, please contact me at the library.

Going Beyond Keyword Searching

Take your searching skills to the next level with MeSH! What is MeSH? MeSH simply means Medical Subject Headings and is a taxonomy of medical subject terms compiled and maintained by the National Library of Medicine. Searching the medical journal literature via our EBSCOHost platform utilizing specific medical subject heading terms rather than keywords, can result in a more efficient, productive, and successful search. Please invest a few minutes of your time viewing this tutorial and then do a practice search or two in our full text EBSCO databases. UMHS / IUON subscribes to these online resources with full text for the benefit of our students and faculty.

Raising your level of expertise in essential information searching skills will serve you well throughout your medical career. Remember ~ dynamic evidence-based medical practice depends first on finding the current best evidence!
