New Webinar! Drive Thru Data: Using NLM APIs to Access Information Fast

Posted by on November 22nd, 2022 Posted in: Blog

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides millions of people access to health information via its portfolio of products and services. Some people may need to access NLM’s resources in special ways to help support new and innovative projects. Application programming interfaces (APIs) can help you access NLM’s data more quickly and efficiently, especially when integrated into a program or script.

This webinar is aimed at librarians and other information professionals who are familiar with NLM’s products and services, but want to explore NLM data in new ways. All levels of technical expertise are welcome, including those who have never heard of APIs before, new API users who needs a little help, and API experts looking for more information about NLM’s API offerings. As long as you’re interested in finding new and improved ways of interacting with NLM’s resources, this webinar is for you!

The webinar has three objectives:

  1. Explain what an API is, how APIs can help users interact with systems, and why users might choose to use APIs.
  2. Describe the basic mechanics of using an API
  3. Identify methods of interacting with APIs
  4. Discuss the various NLM APIs and when a specific NLM API would be useful.
