PubMed Help

PubMed Help

MEDLINE is a curated collection of citations from biomedical and life science journals. 

PubMed Central is a full-text repository for biomedical and life science articles. 

PubMed includes MEDLINE citations, PubMed Central content, NCBI bookshelf citations, pre-print citations, and scientific articles published within MEDLINE journals that aren't strictly medical.

When you access PubMed via High Library's customized database link (, you will see a ViewIt@Etown icon in your search results. This will link you back to the High Library for full text access, if we have it available. Alternately, you can customize your MyNCBI account to display the ViewIt@Etown icon. More information can be found in the library's FAQ.

Not sure where to start?  The Library Catalog and QuickSearch will both cover a broad range of physical and electronic resources held by the Library.  QuickSearch search results will even include some of our online journal article content.  For additional or specialized information, check our list of databases below.  See the menu to the upper left for other commonly used resources.

If you are having trouble getting results or selecting the right resources, please see a librarian.  We would be happy to help you.
