Online Course Announcement: EDirect for PubMed, part of the Insider’s Guide to Accessing NLM Data, starts March 5

Posted in: Classes, News, Online Classes


This newly expanded 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 90-minute sessions (plus an optional “office hours”), 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 90 minutes.

Session 1: Monday, March 5

Session 2: Thursday, March 8

Session 3: Monday, March 12

Session 4: Thursday, March 15

Session 5: Monday, March 19

Office Hours: Thursday, March 22

Students are expected to attend all of the first five sessions (the “office hours” are optional, but encouraged).

Seven (7) hours of MLA CE credit are available for students who attend the first five sessions and complete the homework assignments, and complete the open-book exam no later than Monday, March 26.
