Do keep an eye out for an instruction session in several weeks covering the ins and outs of STAT!Ref, the platform that supports all the e-books in the PHDL Collection.

September 8, 2021 News

Next week we will have the first of many training classes covering how to access and use the PHDL. This session will be offered several times a month as many new organizations have joined our program and are getting onboarded. To register please see: Getting Started with the PHDL.

The session will cover the basics of accessing the PHDL.  Searches using the PubMed widget will be demonstrated and you will see how to access full-text articles from the citations found. You will also get a glimpse at the many proprietary databases including STAT!Ref, PolicyMap, CABI Global Health, and the Cochrane Library.

Future Instruction Sessions

More sessions will be open for registration later this month and throughout the year.  We also plan to host a monthly training covering a different database each month. For September, we will be focusing on the platform STAT!Ref, which holds the dozens of e-books and reports in the PHDL collection.  Please consult this blog later in the month for details about the scheduled class and how to register.

Account creation instructions

Below are detailed instructions and more information about how to set up a single sign-on account if you are working outside of your department intranet and, if you want, a My NCBI account to personalize your experience using PubMed.
