The National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides ready-made PowerPoint presentations, tutorials, and handouts for librarians and researchers who teach PubMed. As your 2022 calendar fills with instruction session requests, consider incorporating these resources into your classes and research guides.
- Introduction to PubMed (download slides) is a 45-minute presentation with speaker notes, introducing new PubMed users to searching for an author, researching a topic, and finding a specific article.
- Where Do I Find Evidence?: Sources for Evidence-Based Practice from the National Library of Medicine (download slides) is a 60-minute presentation with speaker notes on using PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, MedlinePlus, and DailyMed for locating clinical information.
Additional resources for teaching PubMed are available in the PubMed Trainer’s Toolkit and on the PubMed Online Training website.
PubMed.gov is an index of over 33 million citations to journal articles, books, and more in the biomedical and life sciences. Interested in a learning more about PubMed? Enroll in the Network of the National Library of Medicine’s How PubMed Works courses.
