PubMed is a great database to use when searching the biomedical literature. It currently comprises more than 22 million citations to the biomedical literature and covers the 1940s to present. While basic searching in PubMed is quite simple, there are many advanced search features available that you may find very useful in your library research. For more information about searching PubMed, visit our PubMed @ NYU guide.
Public health aims to "fulfill society's interest in assuring conditions in which people can be healthy" (Institute of Medicine, Committee for the Study of the Future of Public Health, Division of Health Care Services. 1988. The Future of Public Health. National Academy Press, Washington, DC). Today more than ever, societies are global. Health conditions in one location have ripple effects across the globe, and people everywhere have a stake in ensuring optimal health for everyone. The broad and interdisciplinary reach of public health topics may lead you to specialized areas and require specific research strategies. Please feel free to contact your librarian at any time.
