PubMed is the National Library of Medicine's free access to the MEDLINE database for the clinical medicine literature. Many of the major eye journals are indexed in the MEDLINE database. If you link to the database from the above link, and you are on the Allina network, you will have access to the Library's licensed fulltext e-journals directly from PubMed.
Create a Personal Account on MD Consult, while on the Allina network, and then you will have remote access to the entire collection of resources, including fulltext journals and books, including Yanoff's Ophthalmology.
This fulltext medical resource offers major texts, such as Harrison's Online, Vaughan & Asbury's General Ophthalmology, and several other fulltext textbooks. Remote access is available; contact Allina Library Services for more information.
The Allina Library has access to a number of ophthalmology journals online. In many cases you need to be on the Allina network to access them, or access via a remote Excellian connection. Check the Allina Library Electronic and Print Journals tool for specific journal online access. In addition, the following eye-related, non-indexed (ie., not in MEDLINE) publications offer limited free access to search and retrieve fulltext articles:
American Academy of Ophthalmology
Includes searchable archives.
Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today
Includes searchable annual archives; many news items and online textbook chapters.
Ocular Surgery News
Offers limited searching unless the user registers for free access. There is the capability to limit by topic (ie., “cataract surgery”) in the sidebar or conduct a search for content limiting to Any Words, All Words, or by Phrase.
Current or past issues are individually searchable.
