Produced by the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM), MEDLINE is the primary database for periodical literature on medicine and other biomedical fields.  It provides international coverage in these subject areas from 1950 to the present.

MEDLINE is made available to Teachers College users by means of the Ebsco interface.  Linkage to full-text journal articles is provided through Article Linker when articles are available online.

MEDLINE via Ovid is also available from the Columbia University Libraries, as is the ISI Web of Knowledge MEDLINE version of the database. In both cases links to full-text journal articles are provided through e-Link when articles are available online through Columbia's e-journal subscriptions.

MEDLINE Plus, a service of the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), presents up-to-date health care information entries on health topics, information on drugs and supplements, and access to a medical encyclopedia, a medical dictionary, health news, directories, and other resources.
