Searching PubMed Legacy: Introduction


PubMed Logo


PubMed Legacy is the free, searchable interface to the MEDLINE database, and is provided by the National Library of Medicine. It provides access to over 29 million citations and abstracts from the biomedical literature. A new mobile-friendly and improved PubMed interface is now available here.

This guide was created for those who are new to searching or need a quick reference. It includes guidance on how to begin a search, use Medical Subject Headings, and find full-text articles. If you would like to meet with a librarian to discuss your research project, contact the library to schedule a consultation.

See the National Library of Medicine's PubMed Online Training for more tutorials.
