NCBI has just released a new blog called NCBI Insights:
We created NCBI Insights to provide an insider’s perspective to help you better understand us and our resources, explore issues of scientific interest that drive our resource development, and learn how you can use our resources to enhance your research.
We will post articles in four categories:
- NCBI Explained offers our perspective on our resources and policies to help you better understand us and avoid some common misconceptions and misunderstandings.
- What’s New introduces our new and updated resources and includes specific examples that demonstrate how you can use these to enhance your research.
- Quick Tips & Tricks explains hows to perform specific tasks using our website. We will select topics based on your questions and suggestions.
- Science Features explores current topics in science and demonstrate how you can find relevant data or resources on our website for further exploration.
This blog is a complement to our existing education and outreach efforts, such as News and Social Media publicity, Webinar and Workshop training programs, and Help Desk user support. See the our Education page (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/education/) for more details on these.
Be sure to check in to the NCBI Insights Blog every week or so and let us know what you think!
