Insider’s Guide to Accessing NLM Data: EDirect for PubMed begins July 10

Posted by on June 13th, 2017 Posted in: Education, News from NLM/NIH


This newly revamped and restructured series of interactive workshops will introduce new users to the basics of using EDirect to access exactly the PubMed data you need, in the format you need. Over the course of five 75-minute sessions, students will learn how to use EDirect commands to access PubMed, design custom output formats, create basic data pipelines to get data quickly and efficiently, and develop simple strategies for solving real-world PubMed data-gathering challenges. EDirect requires access to a Unix environment but we will send easy installation instructions for Windows and Mac computers before the class starts. No prior Unix knowledge is required; novice users are welcome!

This series of classes involves hands-on demonstrations and exercises, as well as homework exercises between sessions. Due to the nature of this class, registration will be limited to 100 students per offering.

Each session begins at 1 PM ET and runs approximately 75 minutes.

  • Session 1: Monday, July 10
  • Session 2: Thursday, July 13
  • Session 3: Monday, July 17
  • Session 4: Thursday, July 20
  • Session 5: Monday, July 24

Students are expected to attend all five sessions. Seven (7) hours of MLA CE credit are available for students who attend all sessions and complete the homework assignments. Register for all five sessions today!

Note: in order to register, you will need to create a free account with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM). Be advised that account creation and confirmation may take a few days.
