NLM's Consumer Health Databases
In recent years, the National Library of Medicine has produced a number of databases designed for the general public. These databases range from health information to environmental conditions that impact health. This 4 hour hands-on course is designed to be an overview of these databases.
These databases can also be taught as a single class, individual modules, or combined for specific needs.
Participants will be able to:
- Learn about the resources that the National Library of Medicine makes available to consumers.
- Know how to search each of these resources.
- Know which resources are best to use for different questions.
- Agenda (rev: Jul 23, 2008)
