Databases in Focus: MEDLINE (via the Ovid interface)

Produced by the US National Library of Medicine and a cornerstone of any search for biomedical and health-related literature, MEDLINE can be used to locate articles of interest from thousands of scholarly journals. With records spanning 1946 to present, this key database is available at UniSA via the sophisticated Ovid interface, along with several other health-focused databases.
