BioMed Central

BioMed Central is committed to open access to original research, offering a diverse range of scientific and medical databases, review journals and over 197 peer-reviewed research journals.



The library recommends searching National Library of Medicine's PubMed for bibliographic citations. In some cases there are direct links from PubMed citations to the corresponding full-text articles for journals to which the library subscribes.



ScienceDirect contains over 25% of the world's science, technology and medicine full text and bibliographic information.

ScienceDirect offers a rich journal collection of over 2,500 titles. The Salk Library subscribes to some Cell Press titles, but not all ScienceDirect journals.



Major newspapers are available for leisure reading as well. Material not available in the Library's collection may be obtained via interlibrary loan from other local and national libraries.
