Start your research by going to the MSU Health Sciences Digital Library homepage. This is different from the Main Library homepage, and it will give you easier access to resources specifically for public health and other health sciences.
Accessing electronic resources
Sometimes you already know which article you want without a database. Or sometimes the database won't let you download full text of the article for some reason. In that case, you can use this video to help you find the article through the library's catalog. Note that the library website interface has changed since this video was made. To search for journals, click on the "journal" link under the search box.
To find a particular journal, enter the journal title into the search box of the Journal/Periodical Title Search.
The results will show whether or not the library subscribes to the journal and has the issue that you need, in a print or digital format.
If the article you need is only available in print, you can have a copy emailed to you free through MSU's MARS system.
If MSU does not subscribe to the journal you need, you can request a copy of the article through Inter-Library Loan.
