Getting Started with the PHDL

This class is no longer accepting registrations

Need access to trusted journals, e-books, and databases to support your work?

Join us to learn how to effectively use the Public Health Digital Library (PHDL) to search and access full-text journal articles and other helpful resources to support evidence-based public health practice.

The PHDL is a program of the National Public Health Coordination Office funded by the Network of the National Library of Medicine. As a member, your organization has access to the program!

This webinar will get you acquainted with using PubMed to search the journal collection, introduce you to additional databases available within the collection, and briefly describe the process for accessing materials not available in the PHDL from your partner library. You will also see demonstrated some tools for keeping current in your field by creating saved searches or alerts.

You will need to be on your organization's network or working from your office, or login into your single sign-on account, to access the PHDL central webpage. A My NCBI account is recommended so you can save your work in PubMed. If needed, please register for a My NCBI account and/or create your single sign-on account to the PHDL prior to the course.


This session focuses on the access and use of the Public Health Digital Library (PHDL) for PHDL program members.
