PubMed Trainer's Toolkit
NLM has announced the new webinar series, How PubMed Works, as the best way to get up to speed on how the new PubMed works and how to use it. Registration is available now for the first round of sessions in March. The series will take the place of some previous classes, like PubMed for Librarians. Each session is 90 minutes long.
New PubMed Trainers’ Toolkit
Also newly released is the PubMed Trainer’s Toolkit
, which will house the recordings of the new PubMed webinar series. It also includes all of NLM’s new PubMed instructional resources, such as a two-page printable factsheet with PubMed basics
. It also provides a link to newly updated online training modules for PubMed Quick Tours
Stay tuned for further developments! New banners have gone up on every legacy PubMed page, strongly urging users to switch to the new interface before it becomes the default later in the spring. NLM will continue to issue more communications, including additional webinars, blog posts, social media updates, and other messages, encouraging more users to switch to the new system.
