If your institution or organization includes programs in the health sciences, involves the health of the public, or works with biomedical researchers, most likely PubMed is a resource often used or should be considered for their work. Unfamiliar with PubMed or want a refresher course so you can better serve your colleagues? Consider taking one or all of the classes offered by our National Training Center.
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine Training Office (NTO) is offering three free online PubMed CE classes in September in a series called PubMed for Librarians.
- Introduction to PubMed: September 7, 2016 (9:00am Pacific Time)
- MeSH: September 14, 2016 (9:00am Pacific Time)

PubMed is a free resource that is developed and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). PubMed includes free access to MEDLINE, the NLM database of indexed citations and abstracts to medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, health care, and preclinical sciences journal articles as well as additional selected life sciences journals not in MEDLINE.
