University Library Has Added Two Useful Databases in Health Science and Related Programs (2012/09/26)

Dear All,

In order to expand the Library's coverage of electronic databases for use by members of the university community, we are constantly on the lookout for open-access (which are free-of-charge) databases that are relevant to the university's curriculum. We are therefore pleased to announce that we have recently added two such databases --

(1) PubMed -- Developed and officially maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information in the United States, it is a database comprising more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher websites.

(2) PubMed Central (PMC) -- It is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM), providing access to about 2.5 million full text articles.

These two databases are widely used by many scholars and researchers in most of the famous universities world-wide with biology, health science and related programs. They will also be useful in our University for similar programs.

For access, you may simply click the titles as listed, or use the links provided in “Databases” on the Library's home page.

Please let us know at if there is any problem encountered in use.
