Loansome Doc $5/article • Don’t pay commercial vendor prices ($20+) for articles! • Order articles electronically--directly from the PubMed database. • Requires 2 registrations: • one with UF’s Health Science Center Library as your local “agent” AND • one with the National Library of Medicine • Electronic desktop delivery if • you have Adobe on your computer • library has downloading rights from publisher
Super Searches Don’t risk missing key articles when submitting grants, publications, proposals! Take advantage of the Super Search Service--have a librarian perform your literature search. The first 100 citations are free, additional citations just $5 / 50
Accessing from Off-Campus 3 ways to connect through UF. For instructions see the Off-Campus Access tab or button on the library’s homepage Gatorlink—charges for non-local dialup EZProxy—easy to set up. May have problems linking in and out of library web pages. VPN—great for non-shared computers
What’s New? “Lost” a favorite database/e-journal? Curious about new ones being added to the library? Look under the Electronic Resources tab at What’s New to see cancellations/additions Current List of New Materials lists new books that have come into the library in the last month
Library Catalog – WebLUIS You can search • just UF library holdings or • SUS (State University System—the combined holdings of all state university libraries in Florida)
Journal Searching Searching the UF libraries for Clinical journals? PubMed journal title abbreviations work. Searching UF for Basic Science titles and SUS for any journal? You must use the full journal title for an accurate picture of library holdings/links.

PubMed Access Access through the UF HSCLibrary helps you access the full articles (more on this later)
PubMed Main Page Click here to return to this page
UF’s tutorial http://www.library.health.ufl.edu/PubMed/PubMed2/index.html is better, but… PubMedSidebar Search for specific journals Search for specific topics Search with Evidence-Based filters and for Systematic Reviews Save searches, strategies here Link to MedlinePlus (patient ed)
MeSH Database(formerly MeSH Browser) Suggests possible terms Click in checkbox if you want a general search on all aspects of the topic Then click on [Send to] and [Search PubMed]
Add subheadings-- as many or few as you want for specific aspects of your topic Limit to articles in which this is a major topic
To explode or not? Click checkbox beneath subheadings to turn off PubMed’s automatic exploding of MeSH terms. Exploding means searching for both the term and all more specific terms under it in the MeSH “tree” Broaden or narrow your search to get desired # of retrievals by using the MeSH tree’s left-to-right, general-to-specific links.
Limits • Click on [Limits]. • Scroll down and use the pull-down menus to limit the number of results by • Language of article (abstracts are all in English) • Type of publication (compare to Preview/Index) • Other criteria Then click [Go] to run search with newly-applied limits
Use History (won’t save in Cubby) Use Preview/Index To Combine Terms OR
Cubby • Cubby is space on the National Library of Medicine (PubMed’s owner)’s server to save your search results and strategies. • Free—though you must register (also free) to access. Access through PubMed’s left sidebar Cubby tries to save your most recent search and asks you to name it.
Cubby (cont’d) • Saves up to 25 searches (for 2 years+) • hyperlinked search name shows search strategy (terms and limits) or retrieves results set from last time you used strategy. • [What’s New for Selected] = # of new citations in PubMed since you last ran search. • [Delete Selected Searches] removes checked searches from Cubby. • [Select/Deselect All] checks/wipes out/updates all stored searches.
