Health Sciences Libraries Webinar Series 2020-2021

The Health Sciences Libraries Webinar Series is a collaborative series intended to explore products and services provided by the National Library of Medicine through case studies. This series aims to support the work of health sciences and hospital librarians as they serve their institutional communities. The webinars will explore National Library of Medicine resources through real world examples provided by experienced librarians.

  • Identify National Library of Medicine products and services.
  • Integrate National Library of Medicine products and services into workflows.
  • Assist institutional community membersĀ in the selection and use of National Library of Medicine products and services.

The series launched in June with Searching LactMed and LiverTox for Drug Effects. Due to the audio issues, the instructor (me!) re-recorded this webinar.

When viewing the recording, I recommend that you enable the captions during the search demonstration. Sharing the screen is a big task for my home laptop and rural internet connection. The sound is a little garbled but much better than the live class! The captions will help. During the webinar, we used these search terms: LactMed; methadone; buprenorphine; buprenorphine and naloxone; LiverTox; acetaminophen; buprenorphine lactation; acetaminophen liver.

I mention two NNLM Resource Picks webinars. Here are the links to those recordings:

Bookshelf (Feb 2020)
LactMed and LiverTox (Nov 2018)

Slides to Searching LactMed and LiverTox for Drug Effects are available upon request. Please email me (link below). If you watch the recording, you are eligible for MLA CE. Here is the evaluation link. You must fill out the evaluation to receive the code for CE.

Upcoming Webinar on Resources for Images

The series continues on Tuesday, August 18th at 1:00pm ET. Join Kelsey Cowles for NLM Resources for Images. The National Library of Medicine offers several unique resources for locating various types of images related to medical and health topics. This one-hour webinar tailored to health sciences librarians will cover how to use several of these resources. Practical and creative ideas for utilizing these resources and introducing them to faculty, staff, and students will also be provided.
