The PubMed database is a product of the National Center for Biotechnology Innovation (NCBI) that contains over 33 million citations for biomedical literature. It covers the biomedicine and health fields, and related disciplines such as life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering. Many of the citations include links to full text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites; when logged in on campus or through WSU, you can access them through FindIt@WSU.

The WSU-Spokane libraries have created a series of tutorials on using PubMed.

Also accessible via the PubMed website are multiple informatics databases from National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Some resources of interest include:
