Making the Most of My NCBI: Customizing My NCBI

Your My NCBI Homepage

This 2 minute video demonstrates how to customize your My NCBI homepage. Scroll down the page to see how to set your account to get UAB licensed full text articles, and how to customize the PubMed filters shown for your search results.

See UAB Licensed Full Text

Set your "Outside Tool" in My NCBI to see the Full Text@UAB Libraries. That way you download licensed full text articles when logged into your My NCBI from anywhere on or off campus. Click on the image below to watch a short demonstration.  

You can create a custom filter that will limit your result set to see free articles and those provided by UAB.  Click the image below to learn how.  Copy this text into the query terms box: "loprovuablib[filter]" or free full text[sb] as shown.

Setting your PubMed Filters

Use My NCBI to set the search filters in PubMed.  Click on the image below for a short video demonstration.
