My first tip for anyone starting out to improving the use of the web for use in searching for information at the reporting station would be to register for a My NCBI account on the pubmed site http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/myncbi/. The second step is to customize the view of articles on NCBI to include the link to your university/hospital/Athens/Ovid library to avoid looking at the screen that tells you that you have to purchase the full text of an article. This is part of a feature of the NCBI website called filters, but is not widely known to users. Yours filters and linkouts appear whenever you are logged in to My NCBIwebsite.
Here is a video explaining this feature on the NCBI website. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/viewlet/myncbi/filters.html
