PMIDs, DOIs, and PMCIDs Oh My!
Posted On: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 16:44 by Brandi Tuttle
Let’s take a moment to demystify these commonly used acronyms. They are all unique identifiers for an article (like a barcode), which can be used to easily link to or find an article online.

The International DOI Foundation assigns a unique alphanumeric string to content online known...MORE

Updates to PubMed 2019
Posted On: Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 14:14 by Beverly Murphy
Much of the year-end processing activities for PubMed were completed at end of 2018. These included changing and updating the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and Supplementary Concept Records for subjects that were not main headings.

Browzine Access Ended August 31st
Posted On: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 - 11:21 by Brandi Tuttle
Access to the handy resource, BrowZine (think "browsing"), will be ending this month.
