This one-hour webinar provides a basic introduction to the NLM Database ALTBIB: Resources for Alternatives to the Use of Live Vertebrates in Biomedical Research and Testing. The webinar will describe the scope of ALTBIB, briefly explain the history of the database and why it exists, identify key people who work on ALTBIB, and demonstrate the features of the resource. Participants will gain hands on experience with the tool with practice exercises, and leave the webinar with a sense of what ALTBIB can and cannot do for animal alternative searches.
