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.
