Database tutorials & Help

These are links to help provided by the actual database producers not the library. 

Databases: Top Picks

These are just a few of the databases available via the library. To see all the databases that are available via the HSC Library go to the HSC Library's Database Page.   There are also 2 documents in another section of this page that list more of the databases available via the libary and a number of free websites that you might find useful.   The free resources will be available to you after you graduate. 

Databases & Free Websites

There are two documents. One contains databases to which UF subscribes and the 2nd one is a list of free websites that you might find useful after you graduate, including ones that contain free full text journal articles.You need to double check the commercial drug information sites for their authoritativeness and currency. Check with your instructor for the acceptability of the .com sites before using for an assignment.
