Customize your My NCBI account to see Available at MU!

A new option has been added to the PubMed results screen. The Available at MU filter will show you what’s available online or in a campus library.

  • You can access the new filter when you search PubMed from the Health Sciences Library webpage
  • You can access the new filter by using this web address for PubMed www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?myncbishare=umochsclib
  • You can add it as a custom filter to your personal My NCBI account
  • Use the Available at MU when you're in a time crunch and just want to see what's available on campus right now.

You will see the new option in the upper right area of the results screen. Click on the Available at MU link to limit your search results to only those items available at MU Libraries.
