Featured Resources for Faculty of Health and Social Sciences
MEDLINE is one of the premier resources for medical research. Medline data can be accessed via several platforms at the Library website. If you are interested in Medline, you may access to Medline (via EbscoHost). If you intend to search for Medline data along with other biomedical and/or Life Sciences information, please use PubMed or Embase.
It covers more than 25 million journal articles in life sciences with a focus on biomedicine research and citations from over 5,200 journals worldwide in 60 languages. PolyU Library used to subscribe Medline via OVID, but we have switched to EbscoHost since the beginning of 2019. The interface of EbscoHost is different from OVID, but the Medline content is the same.
The Library has subscribed three sets of contents through Anatomy.TV. They are (1) Anatomy & Physiology; (2) Speech Language Pathology under the “Clinical Specialties” section; (3) Massage and Manual Therapies under the “Therapy” section.

"[This] story is a documentary following the inspiring journey of 26-year-old, 58-pound Lizzie from cyber-bullying victim to anti-bullying activist. Born with a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Velasquez was first bullied as a child in school for looking different and, later online, as a teenager when she discovered a YouTube video labeling her "The World's Ugliest Woman." The film chronicles unheard stories and details of Lizzie's physical and emotional journey up to her multi-million viewed TEDx talk, and follows her pursuit from a motivational speaker to Capitol Hill as she lobbies for the first federal anti-bullying bill. Written by Sara Hirsh Bordo"--IMDb.
