Registration is now open for How PubMed Works, a series of four 90-minute classes presented via WebEx. The classes are intended for librarians, other information professionals, and anyone interested in learning in-depth about PubMed.
Dates: May 5, 7, 12, and 14 at 11:00am-12:30pm PDT and June 4, 11, 18, and 25 at 11:00am-12:30pm PDT.
The individual classes are:
- How PubMed Works: Introduction
- How PubMed Works: Selection
- How PubMed Works: MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)
- How PubMed Works: ATM (Automatic Term Mapping)
Following is a summary of what is covered in each class:
- The Introduction class provides overviews about finding articles by a specific author and articles on a specific subject. The class also explores the Advanced Search Builder and Search History.
- The Selection class covers issues and concerns surrounding the current publishing landscape; the selection criteria for the different components of the PubMed database and NLM responsibilities and practices in collecting and providing access to the biomedical literature.
- The MeSH class will explore the different components of the MeSH database and the four types of MeSH terms.
- The ATM class will describe the contents of the three translation tables used to map your terms and we take an in-depth look at Search Details.
Each class requires separate registration and is eligible for 1.5 MLA CE credits. The sessions will be recorded; however, no CE is currently offered for watching recordings.
