EDUCATION: Spotlight! on NLM Resources – Wednesday, Sept. 25, 1:00 MT/2:00 CT – Self-Help Resources in NLM Databases

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Spotlight! on NLM Resources - Wednesday, Sept. 25, 1:00 MT/2:00 CT

September’s Spotlight! is a perfect session for Public Librarians.  We will focus on where to find resources and how to use NLM databases. Most NLM databases have training modules of some sort but where are they hidden? Some are simple html pages and some have video tutorials.  Even if you’ve used PubMed before the Internet, you are bound to learn something new. Some of the databases covered will be MedlinePlus, PubMed/MEDLINE, PubMed Health, PHpartners, Haz-Map, and Household Products Database. Attendees will leave the session with a better understanding on where to go when they need to use the “self-teach” method of learning a NLM Database.

One MLA CE credit will be available for this class.  No registration required.
