PubMed Guide: Full Text in PubMed

This guide includes tutorials for searching PubMed and finding the full text of articles.

Finding Full-Text in PubMed


PubMed is a freely available government resource. Anyone can search on PubMed. However, only a few of the articles are freely available to the public.


VSU students, faculty, and staff can search PubMed with links to the full-text available through Odum Library. 


For PubMed to display links to the Odum Library's Print and Electronic Journal holdings and Interlibrary Loan (ILL), you must do one of the following:

  • Use the PubMed link in GALILEO.
  • Use the PubMed link in this research guide.


Use the Find It @ VSU icon to see online full-text options, print holdings, and links to interlibrary loan.
