Access Medline, Embase and many more via York

If you access Medline or Embase via York (as opposed to Hull) you can also access many other databases to help with your studies and broaden your medical horizons including:

  • AMED (Allied and Contemporary Health Medicine)
  •  HMIC (Health Management Information Consortium)
  • PsycINFO (useful for mental health topics)
Simply log into Medline and Embase using your York Account details via the Find Articles & More tab on the HYMS Library pages to view the list of databases available to you.

As they are all provided by the same company (OvidSP) you can transfer your knowledge of and skills using Medline and Embase to the other databses.

Want a refresher on using Medline and Embase? Helpful materials can be found on the VLE:
