What is a PubMed Number (PMID)?
A PMID, also known as a PubMed reference number, is a number assigned by the NIH National Library of Medicine to papers in PubMed. More information can be found at the National Institutes of Health website.
How do I access a resource with a PMID?
McKee Library's Citation Search tool will allow you to search for an article using a PMID.
To access this tool from the library's website, select "Research, Tools, & Collections" using the menu on the right-hand side of the screen. Then select "Citation Search" under "Locate Books, Articles, & More."
Next, enter the PubMed number in the PMID line and select submit. If McKee Library does not have the resource you need, you can request the item through interlibrary loan.
