Big Changes are Coming to PubMed

New PubMed Coming

In spring 2020, the database will transform into a modern hub with a fast, reliable, and intuitive search that connects people to the world’s leading sources of biomedical information. The new interface will continue to provide the search features you rely on and integrate enhanced navigation and display tools, including a built-in citation button, the ability to share articles via social media, and a responsive mobile experience.

Once the new PubMed is the default, all links to PubMed will be redirected and run in the new system. This includes searches from the MeSH Database, the NLM Catalog, Clinical Queries, the Single Citation Matcher, and the Batch Citation Matcher. Following the launch, users will continue to have access to the old PubMed system for several months.

If you would like to test out the new PubMed in preparation for the spring 2020 launch, you can visit the PubMed Labs test site. The system is constantly being updated and improved, so your feedback and suggestions as you explore the site are greatly appreciated. To make sure you still see links to the full text of articles through the library’s subscriptions, you can install the LibKey Nomad browser extension. This browser extension for Chrome will display a PDF download button on any website where it can detect available journal articles, including journal websites and library databases.
