Resources from our holdings and elsewhere for Public Health.
Top Databases for Public Health
PubMed The public interface for the National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE database, a database of millions of abstracts and links to full-text articles in the health sciences. PubMed is considered the go-to resource for the biosciences. Searching can be done with either free text or the controlled vocabulary of Medical Subject Headings (MeSH).
Since not all of the articles in PubMed are available through Arcadia's holdings, be sure to look at our Can't Find Full-text? guide to help find what you need.
