Finding Medical Articles

Are you researching a medical topic?  Try searching the resources below.

Science and Engineering Databases

In addition to the medical databases above, try searching these indexes. They provide access to a larger body of work than we have at the library and will give you a comprehensive look of the current literature available on your topic.

Use the Find It @ USNA button to check if we have access to an item and contact the Engineering Librarian if you need assistance locating a particular article or conference paper. 

Help, I can't access this article!

Try these steps if you find an article or book and can't read it.

  • Submit an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. Watch the video below for more information on how to get started. Note that our website has been updated. Find the interlibrary loan icon in the center of our homepage, or click the icon below.
