MEDLINE is the authoritative bibliographic database of The National Library of Medicine, delivering comprehensive scientific records to articles in the life and biomedical sciences from 1950 to the present. The coverage of material is extensive and international in scope.

The database provides users with over 16 million citations to articles from over 4,000 academic journals in medicine, the basic sciences, nursing, dentistry, history of medicine, and health services research. The database also includes access to PREM. Citations and abstracts are categorized according to the NLM MeSH system for easy retrieval.

The OVID MEDLINE search interface allows users to focus and limit searches, and automatically map to NLM subject headings. An evidence-based medicine search limiter searches MEDLINE, DARE, ACP Journal Club, and Cochrane for EBM literature.
