Databases in Focus: MEDLINE (via the Ovid interface)
The UniSA Library Databases in Focus series showcases features of databases available to UniSA students and staff. These concise one-hour workshops provide the opportunity to explore what these powerful literature search tools can offer for study, teaching, and research.
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.

- discover why and when to use MEDLINE (Ovid)
- practice basic searching
- explore MEDLINE limits (search refinement options)
