>I tried PubMed, which was rated 4 stars

>National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library
>of Medicine (NLM). PubMed has been developed in conjunction with publishers
>of biomedical literature as a search tool for accessing literature citations
>and linking to their full-text versions at publishers' Web sites. PubMed
>searches the 9 million citations in MEDLINE supplemented by pre-Medline
>citations which do not yet have MeSH index terms and by citations supplied
>electronically by publishers.
>I checked my search against our OVID database, and PubMed won for currency.
>For feline leukemia there were no 1997 articles in OVID and there were 4 in
>PubMed. I was able to get April journals. Actually, it was easier to use
>than OVID. Some of these services (not the one I tried) do have full text
>service ranging from $8 + fee to $20.00.  I don't know what the fee
>involves.  That sounds very reasonable, but I'm sure there is a digital snag
>somewhere in there.  But it is an option for titles we don't own for poeple
>who don't qualify for ILLOAN.
