PubMed Enhancements February 2019

PSR News - Wed, 2019-02-06 14:38

The National Library of Medicine has announced several updates to enhance PubMed:

  1. Plain Language Summaries: PubMed will display plain language summaries when these summaries are supplied by the publisher. The plain language summary will appear below the abstract. They will also appear in the XML in the field and in the MEDLINE display with the label OAB.
  2. Reference Lists: In the past, reference lists have been included only in citation data coming from PubMed Central (PMC) articles. NLM now accepts reference lists supplied by publishers. Like the PMC reference lists, the publisher-supplied references will be available in the citation XML and they will display in PubMed Labs.
  3. Systematic Review [Publication Type]: Systematic Review [PT] was added to the 2019 MeSH vocabulary. NLM applied this publication type retrospectively to systematic review citations in PubMed as part of the annual MeSH update in December 2018. The search strategy for the Systematic Review filter was also updated to focus retrieval on citations to systematic reviews. This filter no longer retrieves other article types including meta-analyses, reviews of clinical trials, evidence-based medicine, consensus development conferences, or guidelines. This change is a response to user requests for a Systematic Review filter that returns only citations to systematic reviews. Users can apply the Systematic Review filter to a search from the left sidebar or by including systematic[filter] in the search. This filter is also used for Systematic Review retrieval in PubMed Clinical Queries.

    Please note: The Systematic Review filter will retrieve broader results than searching for systematic review[pt]. The filter strategy also retrieves systematic review citations that have not been assigned the publication type; for example, citations that have not yet undergone MEDLINE indexing.

New NLM Video Offers Information on the Opioid Crisis!

PSR News - Wed, 2019-01-30 17:12

NIH has made the opioid epidemic a priority, launching a multi-institute effort to find scientific solutions to the crisis. NLM is doing its part by getting the word out about the life-saving medication naloxone. Recently, MedlinePlus partnered with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to produce a five-minute animated video about the treatment. MedlinePlus offers additional information and trusted links about the opioid epidemic.

Naloxone might be thought of as an antidote to opioid overdose. It works fast to reverse overdose effects, and it’s safe and easy to use. Even people untrained in health care can carry and use the naloxone nasal spray or injector—and possibly save a life. The video explains how naloxone works, when to use it, and how it is administered. NIDA and NIH are researching many avenues to decrease lives lost from opioids. Naloxone is great for reversing overdose effects, but only when they are caught early. Future developments of better pain management and treatment of opioid abuse may make overdoses a thing of the past.

Save, Email, Cite, and Share buttons have been added to PubMed Labs search results

Secondary source databanks and accession numbers such as ClinicalTrials.gov, GenBank, figshare, and Dryad are now displayed under a new section titled “Associated data.” This section was first added to PubMed Labs on November 21, 2018 and was called “Secondary Source IDs.” It was renamed “Associated data” on December 5. Associated data links are included on the abstract page and can be found quickly via the navigation links on the right side of the page. Associated data can also be displayed when viewing search results in Abstract format by selecting “Expand” under “Supplementary Info.” The Associated data section only appears for citations with one or more of these data. Users can find citations with associated data by searching for data[filter] or by applying the associated data filter from the left side bar to their search results.

Other recent releases include improvements to books citations and enabling display of non-English abstracts:

  • Books citations now display section links and full-text icons when available.
  • When an abstract is available in multiple languages, the English abstract is displayed by default and users can click the other options to change which language is displayed.

Feel free to submit comments, questions, or concerns using the PubMed Labs Feedback button.

Explore NLM’s New Open Data Portal: Data Discovery

PSR News - Tue, 2019-01-29 19:41

The National Library of Medicine is the first of NIH’s Institutes and Centers to adopt the new open data portal, Data Discovery. The first datasets are already available, including content from such varied resources as the Dietary Supplement Label Database, Pillbox, ToxMap, Disaster Lit, and HealthReach. The new portal offers key benefits, including:

  • Powerful data exploration tools—By showing the dataset as a spreadsheet, the Data Discovery platform offers freedom to filter and interact with the data in novel ways.
  • Intuitive data visualizations—A picture is worth a thousand words, and nowhere is that truer than leveraging data visualizations to bring new perspectives on scientific questions.
  • Open data APIs—Open data alone isn’t enough to fuel a new generation of insights. Open APIs are critical to making the data understandable, accessible, and actionable, based on the unique needs of the user or audience.

Developers and technologists who support research, health, and medical organizations require APIs that are modern, interoperable, and standards-compliant. Data Discovery provides a powerful solution to these needs, supporting NLM’s role as a platform for biomedical discovery and data-powered health. This new portal is an exciting step forward in achieving key aspects of the NLM Strategic Plan—to advocate for open science, further democratize access to data, and support the training and development of the data science workforce.

Take a Look at What’s Ahead for NNLM in 2019!

PSR Newsletter - Thu, 2019-01-24 20:00

In a recent blog post, Amanda J. Wilson, head of NLM’s National Network Coordinating Office, laid out priorities for NNLM in the upcoming year.

Engaging through All of Us: All of Us is a nationwide program with the ambitious goal of enrolling one million or more diverse participants. As an All of Us partner, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine develops activities and creates opportunities to provide health resources through public libraries. The NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network funds outreach projects and develops programming to raise awareness about All of Us and improve health literacy. The NNLM partnership has reached 16 states and more than 500 individuals through 150 Network-sponsored activities and events. In addition, last November the Community Engagement Network launched the NNLM Reading Club to help libraries address health information needs through book clubs.

Equipping a Data-Ready Workforce of Librarians: Since the NNLM Training Office (NTO) launched the training program Biomedical & Health Research Data Management for Librarians in January 2018, there have been two cohorts. The program works to better equip health information professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to support research and deliver improved services to their institutions, communities, and colleagues. NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery supports their ongoing activities. In addition, videos from the 2018 research data management webinar series are available on YouTube. Topics range from Wikidata to data visualization and from library research data management services to teaching R for statistical computing. In 2019, a new course debuts, Beyond Research Data Management for Biomedical and Health Sciences Librarians. This second-level course will cover advanced topics in research data management, including science communications and the role of data management in data sciences and open science. (The application period for this course closed January 4.)

Editing Wikipedia: The world’s largest medical library continues to increase its presence on the world’s largest online encyclopedia. Through two national edit-a-thons last year, Network members helped improve available health information by editing Wikipedia articles related to rare diseases and women’s health. In total, participants made 1,441 edits to 315 articles, which, collectively, have been viewed over four million times. They also engaged with their peers and with NNLM staff on Twitter via the hashtag #CiteNLM2018. The first Wikipedia #CiteNLM Edit-a-Thon of 2019, Elevating Health Equity, will be held this May during the Medical Library Association annual meeting!

Through these activities and more, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine is looking to expand our reach, enhance our impact, and entice more medical librarians to join our efforts to improve the public health and the public’s access to trusted, quality health information. If you aren’t already a member, consider joining. You’ll be glad you did!

New Organizational Developments for NLM Coming in 2019!

PSR Newsletter - Sat, 2019-01-05 18:25

In her first blog post of 2019, NLM Director Dr. Patti Brennan had many exciting updates to share. First, as of January 1, NLM has a new organizational chart that anticipates the outcome of a first phase of reorganization that will be implemented over the coming year. This initial phase focuses on consolidating NLM staff and related programs into fewer divisions and offices to improve efficiency and our overall effectiveness. Details of these changes will continue to be worked on during the year, with regular updates on the progress and the implications for specific NLM programs and services.

Missing from the new organizational chart is the Specialized Information Services (SIS) Division, the place within NLM that addressed the health information needs of specific communities, including Native Americans, minority-serving institutions, and urban teens. Commitment to these and other populations traditionally underserved within health care have not wavered, but NLM is working to ensure both the sustainability of this notable work and its integration into the fabric of the new NLM. The new, streamlined organization will incorporate within other offerings the critical information resources and services SIS originally provided.

Second, the Office of High Performance Computing and Communications, situated within the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications since the early 1990s, has closed. This unit offered many innovations over the years, advancing health computing to the 21st century and launching one of NLM’s most incredible ventures, the Visible Human Project. NLM will continue to make the Visible Human data available, but staff from the Office will be incorporated into other branches of the Lister Hill Center.

The third arm of the reorganization integrates the creative design and development services of the Audiovisual Programs Development Branch, also from the Lister Hill Center, into NLM’s Office of Communications and Public Liaison. This realignment will help incorporate advanced media and visualization techniques into NLM’s robust communication programs to better inform the public of the many information services and research advances.

Finally, NLM is renaming its Office of Health Information Programs Development the Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI). OSI will play a key role in advancing NLM efforts in data and open science, program evaluation, and the strategic plan implementation.

Along with these changes there will be assessment of staff skills and evaluation of interests to best align those skills and interests with NLM’s evolving needs. NLM is committed to retaining its federal staff as functions are realigned, and will do its best to ensure matching of the talented staff with work they enjoy and the Library needs.

NLM Launches a New Banner Exhibition

PSR News - Sat, 2019-01-05 18:04

The U.S. National Library of Medicine has announced Politics of Yellow Fever in Alexander Hamilton’s America, a banner exhibition with a companion special display and an online adaptation. The exhibition opens January 11, to commemorate what would have been Alexander Hamilton’s 249th birthday. The online adaptation includes an education component featuring a K-12 lesson plan and a university module

In 1793, yellow fever ravaged Philadelphia, killing thousands and devastating the city’s infrastructure. Philadelphians confronted the outbreak in the absence of an effective cure or consensus about the origins of the disease. Medical professionals, early political parties, and private citizens seized on the epidemic to advance their respective agendas. As a result, Philadelphia’s sick and dying received care informed as much by public debate as by medical knowledge. Politics of Yellow Fever presents the story of how Philadelphia’s sick, anxious residents responded to the epidemic using an uneasy blend of science and politics. The companion special display traces the history of the disease from the 18th-century urban epidemics to Walter Reed’s discovery that mosquitos transmit the disease in 1900 and the advent of an effective vaccine.

The special display will be open to the public from January 11 to May 22, in the NLM History of Medicine Division (HMD) Reading Room on the first floor of the National Library of Medicine.

NLM VSAC Launches Intensional Definition Functionality

PSR News - Fri, 2018-12-21 16:23

The National Library of Medicine Value Set Authority Center (VSAC), with support from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has announced the launch of the Intensional value set definition functionality in the VSAC Authoring Tool. Through the VSAC Authoring user interface, value set authors can algorithmically define value sets with logical rule-based Boolean clauses and hierarchy operators, leveraging the structure and hierarchies of terminologies. Logically-defined value sets, combined with the value set author’s guidance, can incorporate future changes as terminologies evolve to add or remove concepts, increasing efficiency and accuracy of value set creation and maintenance.

An example of a rule-based value set could be: include all codes that are descendantsOf the SNOMED CT® code for ‘Clinical finding,’ exclude all codes that are descendantOrSelfOf ‘Wound finding.’ This first deployment of the VSAC Intensional Functionality provides support for hierarchy functions for several terminologies. Later in 2019, VSAC will add intensional functionality for more terminologies, including RxNorm and LOINC®. Learn more about how to Create an Intensional Value Set in the VSAC Support Center.
