Accessing MEDLINE via PubMed
Access the MEDLINE index via the PubMed interface from the National Library of Medicine.
What is MEDLINE?
MEDLINE is a comprehensive medical and health science literature database from the National Library Medicine, including access to references from nursing journals. MEDLINE is accessible from a variety of interfaces, including PubMed.
Wright State also has access to a MEDLINE interface through EBSCOHost. However, it is suggested that you use PubMed because the content is updated more frequently and because, as a government resource, the PubMed interface is available to the public. Thus, the search interface will be available to you even if in the future, you are not affiliated with Wright State.

PubMed User Guides
Full-Text in PubMed
When viewing your search results in PubMed, you will see this link on the abstract page or full view of the citation. This link will allow you to determine whether Wright State has full text subscription access or if you have to request the article using Interlibrary loan.
Often, in addition to the gold Find It icon, there will be publisher icons. Wright State may or may not have subscription access to those publishers, whereas the Find It link provides Wright State-specific information.
If Wright State has neither print nor online access to the article you need, you can request the article via Interlibrary Loan. Click the "Request this item through interlibrary loan" link within the Find It! window, or from the library's homepage click the Interlibrary Loan link under "Featured Services". If you are a first time-user, click the First Time User Registration.
