What is PubMed Central? "PubMed Central (PMC) 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). This archive collection contains over 6.2 million articles comprising a mix of full-participation journals, NIH portfolio journals, and selective deposit journals. Additional information is available via a collection of links on the PMC home page."
Please use the Contact Information in the box on the right side of this page, or the link on the home page,, to make a one-on-one appointment with a librarian, in person or via Zoom or Chat, to learn more about PubMed. Though described as more user-friendly than ever, that still does not mean that PubMed is easy to search. One of the most frequent expressions we hear from students who have spent some time with a librarian learning how to effectively and successfully search on PubMed is "I learned a lot!" Group or workshop appointments can also be arranged! Just contact a librarian to make an appointment.
