Spotlight! is now DISCOVER…..AND our next session!

Friday, June 6th, 2014

We’ve renamed our” Spotlight! on National Library of Medicine Resources” to…..(can you hear the drum roll?)  “Discover NLM and More.”   The change is being made to help us re-gear, rethink, and restructure our webinars, not just to include more and different resources, but to include you, to interact with you in these training sessions, and discover right along with you, all the wonderful resources we have at our fingertips, from the National Library of Medicine, and other webpages, that may be relevant to you.

Our “first” new session will be on Wednesday,  June 25 at 1:00 MT/2:00 CT – “However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the result.”

  •  Wise words fromWinston Churchill, and they could not be more appropriate for this one-hour session on the ClinicalTrials.gov results database. This free public registry of clinical trials launched in 2000 with a mere 4,000 studies, and today boasts nearly 168,000. Join Dana Abbey to explore the basics of clinical trials, the purpose of registering and submitting results, and searching and interpreting results.
