Database Tips

Database Searching Tips

  • Use PubMed and Medline with Full-text together to get the most out of the databases.  Copy the PMID numbers of articles from one to the other to find Full-text.
  • PMID number is the unique numer assigned to every article in PubMed and Medline with Full-text.
  • PubMed and Medline with Full-text cover the same information.  The difference is in how each searches. 
  • MeSH - Medical Subject Headings.  Used to search Medline with Full-text and Pubmed.
  • Phrase searching does not work in PubMed
