Kerry Cotter and I (Elaine Dean) are presenting a workshop about PubMed, the biomedical database from the National Library of Medicine on Feb. 16 from 2pm-3pm at the Health Sciences Library on South Campus (Abbott Hall). This workshop will provide a basic introduction to searching the database and about the features of the new user interface. PubMed is a service of the federal government providing free access to over 19 million citations for biomedical and life science journals. This valuable resource would be useful for the patrons of many different types of libraries, and we wanted to invite anyone who is interested to attend.
This is the official description of the workshop:
PubMed: Navigating the New Interface
Recently, PubMed, the biomedical database from the National Library of Medicine, changed its interface. This course will provide a general introduction to searching PubMed, and discuss some of the changes. Learn how to formulate a search strategy, use the medical subject headings (MeSH), manage the results of a search, save your searches with MyNCBI, and use other PubMed’s powerful search features.
This will be a small, hands-on class. If you are interested please register through the Teaching and Learning Center.
