Medline vs. PubMed
What is the difference? Which should you use?
Just so you know, Medline is a subset of PubMed. We recommend that you always use the PubMed link from the list of MU Libraries databases. The library holdings will display if Marshall owns the journal/article when you select the "abstract" option on the left side of the results list.
On the other hand, if you want your search limited to evidence-based research, it is recommended that you use the Medline from the EBSCO platform.
For more information, the US National Library of Medicine has prepared a Fact Sheet on this topic.
