Here at the NTO we are super excited to kick off the new year with our updated roster of PubMed for Librarians sessions (or PML, as we like to say). PML is designed with the busy librarian in mind. Each of our six sessions focus on different aspects of PubMed – giving you the option to pick and choose based on your needs.

The Expert Searcher – Our evidence-based medicine session on Thursday, February 16 discusses how publication types are used to index articles in PubMed.
The Research Support Specialist – Explore the nuances of myNCBI on Thursday, February 23 and become your university researcher’s best friend.
All PMLs start at 1pm ET/Noon CT/11am MT/ 10am PT. PMLs are held online via WebEx and run about 90 minutes per session. Recordings are also available. And best of all, THEY ARE FREE!
