Posted by on December 16th, 2019 Posted in: Announcements, Technology, Training


The National Network of Libraries of Medicine is pleased to open registration for the fifth cohort of Bioinformatics and Biology Essentials for Librarians: Databases, Tools, and Clinical Applications. This course is designed both for librarians who offer, or intend to offer, bioinformatics services; and also for librarians who use gene and protein information on a periodic or irregular basis to serve their patrons. The 16-week, self-paced Moodle course reviews basic biology concepts and takes a deep dive into NCBI Molecular Biology Databases. It is worth 30 hours of continuing education credit from the Medical Library Association. Successful participants are invited to join an Alumni Forum which includes discussion and bi-monthly learning opportunities. This fifth cohort of the course will run January 17 to May 8, 2020.

Registration closes on January 10, 2019 at 11:59 pm of your time zone. This course is limited to 60 participants. A 20-seat wait list is also available. Registration preference is given to librarians or information specialists who are U.S. citizens or residents of the United States. When registering, you will be automatically wait-listed and contacted by NNLM via email about your enrollment.

Subject Matter Experts for this course include Peter Cooper, PhD and Bonnie Maidak, PhD, MLS, National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Library of Medicine. There are four major due dates to successfully complete this course:
