PubMed® for Librarians: Introduction to PubMed

Class Description | Agenda | Current Training Opportunities for this Class

90 minutes

Class Description

Due to extremely high demand for this class, a recording from the most recent session can be viewed on the NTC website.

PubMed for Librarians is made up of five 90 minute segments. These five segments will be presented via Adobe Connect and recorded for archival access.

Each segment is meant to be a stand-alone module designed for each user to determine how many and in what sequence they attend.

The segments are designed to take 1.5 hours each and, if the live session is attended, along with any pre-requisite work completed, will earn 1.5 MLA Continuing Education hours.

Attend this class to learn about the difference between PubMed and MEDLINE, how to run a PubMed search, assess your search retrieval, analyze search details, customize with My NCBI, discover and employ three ways to search for a known citation and use the Clinical Queries search tool.
