- Health Databases on the Library Web
These databases can be accessed at any of our library locations as well as from an internet-connected computer outside the library. (Outside the library, if requested, use account name "memphis" and password "elvis" to access the library's databases.) Under "Subjects" you will find a collection of icons. Scroll down and select the one labelled "Health" to search for medical and health periodicals with current information.
PubMed is the National Library of Medicine's search service. It provides access to over 11 million citations in MEDLINE, PreMEDLINE and other related databases, with links to participating online journals.
