The National Library of Medicine Training Center will be offering a new online class called “PubMed for Librarians” beginning in January. Participants can choose any or all of the 5 segments (one hour each) that interest them. Each session will be held using Adobe Connect and is worth 1 hour of MLA CE credit.
Choose from the following segments:
Introduction to PubMed
Automatic Term Mapping (ATM)
Building and Refining Your Search
Customization with My NCBI
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)
You can find the full class descriptions and the registration form at: http://nnlm.gov/ntcc/classes/schedule.html
The class will be offered at least once a quarter. Enrollment for the live segments is limited, but the sessions will be recorded and posted on NTC’s web site.
It doesn’t happen too frequently, but sometimes PubMed goes down. When PubMed goes down for a significant amount of time and effects a significant number of users, the National Library of Medicine will send out an email alerting users who are subscribed to the announcement-only listserv.

The National Library of Medicine ALTBIB portal provides access to PubMed® and MEDLINE® citations relevant to alternatives to the use of live vertebrates in biomedical research and testing.
This collection provides citations from published articles, books, book chapters, and technical reports published from 1980 to 2000. The bibliography features citations concerning methods, tests, assays, and procedures that may prove useful in establishing alternatives to the use of intact vertebrates. Many citations provide access to free full text.

The Introduction to MeSH 2013 is now available, including information on its use and structure, as well as recent updates and availability of data. Read more about it: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/introduction.html
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is currently involved in MEDLINE year-end processing (YEP) activities. These include changing the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and Substance Names on existing MEDLINE citations to conform with the 2013 version of MeSH, and other global changes.
November 14, 2012: NLM expects to temporarily suspend the addition of fully-indexed MEDLINE citations to PubMed. Publisher-supplied and in process citations will continue to be added.
Mid-December 2012: PubMed MEDLINE citations, translation tables, and the MeSH database will have been updated to reflect 2013 MeSH.
For details about the impact on searching from November 14 to mid-December, see: Annual MEDLINE/PubMed Year-End Processing (YEP): Impact on Searching During Fall 2012.
For background information on the general kinds of changes made annually, see: Annual MEDLINE/PubMed Year-End Processing (YEP): Background Information.
PMC (also known as PubMed Central) recently updated its look and feel, to conform to NCBI’s new standards for page design. This redesign allows for a cleaner and more uniform presentation across PMC’s site as well as its article, issue and journal archive pages.

A new PubMed® search feature is now available that allows a search for structured abstracts in PubMed. For more information see Structured Abstracts: New PubMed Search Feature. NLM Tech Bull. 2012 Jul-Aug;(387):b1.
