MCR Webinar: PubMed at the Public Library

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List, All Members

Note the change: The series will be scheduled on the third Tuesday each month at 2pm MT/3pm CT

The new version of PubMed.gov makes accessing this research easier than ever for the general population, with automatic term mapping, best match searching, and better webpage layouts and features. PubMed is already a popular tool in life sciences libraries, because students will always have access to it while they have an internet connection.

This session if geared primary towards public librarians who might have questions about using PubMed and helping their patrons use the website as well. In this session we will:

  1. Describe the areas of research covered in PubMed
  2.  Describe the content and the history of the MEDLINE database
  3. Create a My NCBI account that customizes the PubMed experience
  4. Create a search alert
