An updated PubMed interface is coming soon. The new interface is more modern, easier to navigate, easier to format and download citations, and is configured to be more compatible with mobile devices. Many search features are improved or remain the same in the new PubMed, and the PubMed you use now will still be available for a few months during the transition to the new interface. However, the legacy PubMed will eventually go away.

You may not notice the enhanced retrieval features in the new PubMed, but advice for searching in the new PubMed is the same as in the current version: keep the search terms simple with no fancy quotations marks or search syntax. Saved searches in your MyNCBI account, as well as your collections and preferences information, will automatically transfer over to the new PubMed system.

While the new PubMed interface is not quite finalized, most of the new displays and the current features you love and use now can be previewed at PubMed Labs, the site where the new PubMed interface is being tested. Start trying your searches in PubMed Labs now! We will post an update when the new interface goes live. To learn more, visit the National Library of Medicine’s Technical Bulletin.

Your embedded librarian is available to help you learn the new PubMed and help with more complex literature and systematic review searches. As always, AU users should start their PubMed searches from the PubMed links on the Greenblatt Library home page to successfully link to the library’s full-text journal holdings.
