Introduction to PubMed: demonstration Online

PubMed is a free interface for searching MEDLINE, the most popular bibliographic database in the health and medical sciences. It contains references to millions of journal articles and is updated daily.

PubMed is particularly useful for those carrying out a scoping search prior to writing essays, papers and dissertations. This live online session, aimed at both NHS staff and UCL staff and students, offers a short demonstration, covering how to construct an effective literature search, to conduct a search using the Basic and Advanced options, to apply Limits, to save a Search strategy, to save and export results, including to a bibliographic reference management tool.

After the demonstration there will be an opportunity to ask any questions. The session will run for an hour, but tutors will remain for an additional 30 minutes if there are any questions which have not been answered during the hour.

Please note: although this short demonstration does not offer hands-on practice or time to explore complex search queries, there will be opportunity to ask questions. Please contact us or the relevant site library or subject librarian for individual specialist support.
