PubMed Tutorial

PubMed is a leading database for health sciences research. Because it is developed by the National Library of Medicine, it is freely available on the web, and as such, is a key resource for health professionals throughout their careers.

While PubMed is easy to access from Google, NDSU Libraries have customized parts of PubMed to make searching and accessing articles easier for students and faculty. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you navigate to PubMed through the library website to access these features. Use the drop-down menu on the library homepage to select “Academic Databases,” where you’ll find the PubMed link in the “Popular Databases” list.

Altermatively, you can go directly to PubMed
