PubMed at the Public Library - MCR Webinar

Class Details

With health and medical news at the top of the headlines for most of the year, there is a desire among the general population to better understand health sciences research.

The new version of PubMed.gov makes accessing this research easier than ever for the general population, with automatic term mapping, best match searching, and better webpage layouts and features. PubMed is already a popular tool in life sciences libraries, because students will always have access to it while they have an internet connection.

This session is geared primarily towards public librarians who might have questions about using PubMed and helping their patrons use the website as well. In this session we will:

1. Describe the areas of research covered in PubMed
2. Describe the content and the history of the MEDLINE database
3. Create a My NCBI account that customizes the PubMed experience
4. Create a search alert

Prior to becoming a life sciences librarian Jacob worked in public libraries and non-profits around the Kansas City area. Outside the library, Jacob enjoys spending time at the lake and playing board games.
