Localize PubMed for Your Users with LinkOut

from a press release by Tansy Szeliga of the NCBI LinkOut team, first published in Dragonfly Newsletter of the Pacific Northwest Regional Medical Library, April 21, 2005

A medical resident comes into the library to find information for his Grand Rounds presentation in 4 hours. He performs a quick PubMed ® search, and retrieves 428 citations. In the search result, the library's icon marks articles that are immediately available, electronically or in print. Next to the complete set of results, a tab tells him that 53 articles are available from the library. He clicks the tab to focus on what can be accessed quickly. After selecting several articles under the library tab, the resident returns to the complete set of results and finds several more articles that are not available at the library for further study. He requests them from the library's document delivery service directly through PubMed.

Too good to be true? Not at all. Recent development of LinkOut , Outside Tool and Document Delivery Service (DDS) by the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the National Library of Medicine® allows libraries to connect users to local resources ("localize") in PubMed by providing easier, more focused, means of linking to a wide variety of related web-accessible resources and additional services, such as OpenURL-based link resolvers and local document delivery services.

The ability to localize electronic resources for a user population is a feature increasingly valued by both researchers and librarians. For users, localization features provide seamless access to available resources. For libraries, localization features allow spotlighting of and direction to resources that are readily available or of high interest to their users.

A variety of special URLs and My NCBI Filters are available for use in localizing PubMed. Special URLs allow users to activate a library's local profile in PubMed. The My NCBI feature allows easy branding and identification of a library's holdings in a PubMed search result by grouping library holdings as a result tab in PubMed searches. Citations with links to other materials of interest can be grouped as result tabs as well.

A few examples of how localization might be used:

  • A small hospital library uses a special URL to display library holdings and automatically apply their library icon to all PubMed citations with links to free full-text, clearly marking all articles available to their users.
  • A departmental library at a large institution uses a filter tab to group departmental holdings and a special URL to display a link to the institution-wide link resolver on PubMed citations. Users recognize which articles are immediately available and can locate or order others.
  • A hospital library selects two additional filters besides their library holdings: one filter tab highlights citations with links to National Guideline Clearinghouse material, of particular interest to their clinicians, and another filter tab displays the holdings of their affiliated medical school.

Details about using special URLs can be found at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/linkout/doc/localizing.html

For more information about using Filter Selections in My NCBI , please see the documentation at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query/static/help/pmhelp.html#FilterPreferences

Participation information for LinkOut, Outside Tool and DDS can be found at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/linkout/doc/lbsub-i.html

Comments and questions about LinkOut can be sent to lib-linkout@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

  • Skills development
  • State-of-the-art resources
  • Resource development
  • Document access

Emphasis is placed upon the following types of organizations or arrangements for developing these programs:

  • Community-based organizations (CBOs) or patient advocacy groups currently providing AIDS related services to the affected community
  • Public libraries serving communities in the provision of AIDS-related information and resources
  • Health Departments or other local, municipal, or state agencies working to improve the public health
  • Faith-based organizations currently providing AIDS related services
  • Multi-type consortia of the above-listed organizations that may be in existence or formed specifically for this purpose

Standard Awards are offered for up to $50,000; Express Awards are offered for up to $10,000.

Proposals are due to NLM on June 17, 2005.

PubMed On Your Mind? Could Be It's All Those Improvements

Clinical Queries
The PubMed Clinical Queries page has been redesigned to provide an improved interface to the specialized PubMed searches for clinicians. The new design retains the basic functionality currently used, and the search strategies for the queries will not change. The new design now has three search options:

  • Search by Clinical Study Category (old name: Clinical Queries using Research Methodology Filters)
  • Find Systematic Reviews
  • Medical Genetics Searches

The three are displayed as jump links at the top of the page and each has its own query box.

Special Queries added to PubMed's blue side bar. Like the Clinical Queries link that takes a searcher to a page providing specialized PubMed searches for clinicians.The Special Queries link provides access to a directory of topic-specific PubMed queries including complementary medicine, history of medicine, and MedlinePlus health topics as well as AIDS, bioethics, systematic reviews, and also cancer topic searches. For more information, see the NLM Technical Bulletin at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/ma05/ma05_technote.html#queries

PubMed on Tap server reinstated. PubMed on Tap Client runs on either Palm OS PDAs or PocketPC PDAs. The PDA must have a wireless connection to the Internet. Your current client should now work fine with this mobile product. NLM's system administrator and security team have assured that it is secure. To download the clients and get more information, visit http://archive.nlm.nih.gov/proj/pmot/pmot.php

PubMed trifold brochure revised to reflect recent changes to the design of the "Results" action bar, and is now available. It is a concise, one-page tutorial about PubMed, developed and updated by NN/LM® staff and funded by the NLM, that can be freely reproduced. Just print and fold and give out to interested patrons and searchers. http://nnlm.gov/nnlm/online/pubmed/pmtri.pdf

    The eRA commons system (the route through which NIH grantees enter the manuscript submission system) is a second submission route. Release of a third submission route, which involves MyNCBI and will allow third parties (including library staff) to submit manuscripts on behalf of NIH grantees and contractors, is scheduled for July 6, 2005.

    NLM and the RMLs will be providing more specific information to the library community about both the eRA and MyNCBI submission paths in the near future - at the MLA annual meeting. NLM appreciates the strong interest health sciences librarians have shown in helping to make the NIH public access policy a success.
