PubMed Video Tutorial

PubMed from Lawrence W. Tyree Library on Vimeo.

This video tutorial will demonstrate how to access articles from the Lawrence W. Tyree Library using PubMed.

PubMed is a public medical database provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. To see library holdings in PubMed, you must use a special PubMed link found in the Library’s A-Z Databases list. To access this list, click the grey Databases button on the library website.

PubMed is listed alphabetically on the A-Z Databases page, or under the Health & Medicine and Nursing & Allied Health subject categories. To access this database, click its title.

To perform a basic search, enter your keywords into the search box. If you are not sure which keywords to use, consider using the MeSH Database to search for the best terminology. For this example, the keyword phrase is peanut hypersensitivity.

In the results, some articles will be noted as Free Article or Free PMC Article. These articles are freely available on the Web. Other articles may be available through the Library’s subscriptions. To see full text options, click the title of an article.

Look for the Full text links section on the right side of the screen. Click the Full Text @ SF link to determine if an article is available in full text from the Library.

After clicking the Full Text @ SF link, you will be prompted to log in. Your Borrower ID is your 8-digit Santa Fe ID number without the hyphen. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your 8-digit Santa Fe ID number.

If full text is available, you will be taken directly to the article.

If full text is not available, you will be taken to a page that provides you with the option to request the article through interlibrary loan. If you would like to try to get this article from another library, click Submit an ILL request for this item.

This takes you to an interlibrary loan request form with the article information already pre-populated. Fill in the section at the top of the form, and then click Submit. Library staff will contact you when the article is available. Please allow up to one week processing time.

This concludes the video tutorial on accessing articles through PubMed. If you still have questions, please contact a librarian.
