The UNC Charlotte J. Murrey Atkins Library subscribes to a number of online databases which index and abstract most of the journal literature in the biomedical and life sciences. These online resources make keyword and subject searching relatively easy. Selecting the most appropriate database(s) to search and the most effective terminology is not always an easy task. Depending on the subject, searching several databases for alternatives is considered adequate by the IACUC.
The MEDLINE® database is directly searchable from NLM as a subset of the PubMed® database service.
