Sci-Tech Database of the Month

Filed under: Digital Resources — Tags: , , — pam @ 5:22 pm


PubMed provides access to complete bibliographic information from nearly 5,000 biomedical journals and magazines. Articles from other life sciences publications are also indexed if their content is appropriate. Subject coverage includes clinical and experimental medicine, as well as the basic biological sciences that support the medical sciences. While the primary focus is biomedical, PubMed indexes many articles on clinical psychology. Citations include links to the publisher’s web sites, where the full text may be available.

The database has been enhanced in a couple of ways during the past year. First, it’s now possible to perform advanced searches on multiple fields simultaneously (author, title, and institutional affiliation, for example) – simply select the Advanced Search option from the toolbar at the top of the page. The most recent enhancement allows users to determine whether, as members of the CCNY community, they have access to the full text of specific articles. In order for this enhancement to work, you must enter the PubMed database through the Databases A-Z list (link on the left side of this screen).

Once you have performed your search and are viewing an individual citation, you will see a 0000116726_sfx

icon in the upper right – when you click on it, you’ll be given a list of places where the full text may be available.
