Description: NNLM Resource Picks is a collaborative, bimonthly, webcast series featuring the National Library of Medicine resources to increase awareness of these resources as well as encourage their integration by libraries and other organizations to more fully serve their colleagues and communities. The purpose of this NNLM Resource Picks presentation is to familiarize participants with the drug toxicity resources LactMed and Livertox available online from the National Library of Medicine. The live session will include an overview and search demonstrations for each database. LactMed contains information on drugs, dietary supplements, and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers might be exposed. It includes information on the levels of those substances in breast milk and infant blood, as well as possible adverse effects in a nursing infant. LiverTox provides information about drug induced liver injury caused by prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbals and dietary supplements.
