Search PubMed:     

Published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, PubMed is the premier resource for medical literature. It is an international database for all medical professions, so use the left sidebar to limit by language, article type, or a specialty area like nursing.

Salem Health is a perfect place to start research on a health or medical topic. It is an excellent source for background, introductory, or overview information. 

Credo Logo

Credo Reference helps you start your medical research with books of specialized terminology, references on anatomy and physiology, and works on medical practice.
Google Scholar Search

Google Scholar includes both books and articles. Be careful when selecting that the source is reputable. If an article is not made freely available online, remember that you can use the BC3 Library's Request an Article service to request it and we will do our best to obtain it and email it to you - free of charge.
