PubMed Search Help Items

The PubMed Search Builder page is a good way to search the biomedical literature. It allows one to not only search by fields (author, journal, words in title or abstract, etc), but more than one field at a time. It also allows for subject searching.
The recording of a recent thirty minute online PubMed SearchBuilder  clinic is available. Please note that, due to technical limitations, there is a maximum capacity of 300 participants permitted.

Have an incomplete citation? Try the PubMed Single Citation Matcher and enter as much about  the citation as is known.
(This citation matcher is also available through a link at the PubMed home page).
Another idea…check out  the May-Jun 2010, Skill Kit: Save Time Finding Citations by Title Matching in the PubMed Search Box

More search help is available through the links at the PubMed home page under Using PubMed.
