Where you go to set PubMed limits such as dates, language and article types has changed – hopefully for the better. It’s all just semantics with a little bit of functional design thrown in, really.
Limits in Pubmed are now called Filters. They are located on the left hand side of the PubMed screen. This video from NCBI shows where to find filters and how to use them. (Previously they were located under the search box on a separate page called Limits.)

Are your library skills a little rusty? Come to one of our General Library Orientation classes and learn about the our resources, how to search the online catalog and PubMed, and how to request an Interlibrary Loan. The schedule is now posted for October-December. Contact Carolyn Bridgewater for more information.
Harry Truman was President, gas cost 15 cents a gallon, the transistor was invented, and internationally renowned surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey was publishing articles on the US Army’s World War II experience with battle injuries, military surgery, and the use of streptomycin therapy. Citations to these and more than 60,000 other articles indexed in the 1947 Current List of Medical Literature (CLML) are now available in the National Library of Medicine® (NLM®) MEDLINE®/PubMed database.
That brings the number of citations available in PubMed to a whopping 20 million! That is a lot of biomedical research for only 63 years.
