PubMed, freely available on the web, was developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a federal office under the NIH as a search tool for accessing literature citations and linking to some full-text journals.
If you access PubMed through the BC Libraries website, you will have more success finding full-text articles; listings in the "Link Out" link will go through the library's link resolver to access articles that would otherwise be blocked by a paywall on the public PubMed site. Here's how to do it from the library home page:
- On the library home page, click the "Databases" link to get to the Databases A-Z page.
- Enter "Pubmed" in the databases search box.
- Click the blue highlighted link that appears below the box.
- In Pubmed search results, click on the title of an article that interests you, and in the full article record, click "FindIt@BC" to search for a full text version.
