Effective searching is a time-saver. Users are encouraged to explore the Tutorials page that provides links to search guides for specific databases and resources, including PubMed.

 Users are urged to take advantage of the library web site’s powerful search and navigation tools.

  • OneSearch+ simultaneously searches multiple databases and the PCOM catalog. It is a discovery tool that mines information in databases you do not routinely search.
  • Journal Locator+ links to over 10,000 licensed electronic journals. You can search by keyword, title, subject, publisher, or collection.
  • Full Text Finder links from a reference in a database to the full text article in any licensed collection. Look for the database specific link to full text, for example:  full text finder logo in PubMed, OneSearch and other EBSCOhost databases (Academic Search, AltMed, IPA, PsycINFO, etc.)
