Self-Help Resources in NLM Databases
1:00-2:00 Mountain Time, 2:00-3:00 Central Time
September’s free “Spotlight! on National Library of Medicine Resources” is a perfect session for Public Librarians. We will be focusing on where you can go to find self-help resources on how to use NLM databases. Most NLM databases have some sort of training modules, ranging from html pages to full on YouTube video tutorials. We will be covering a smorgasbord of NLM databases: MedlinePlus, PubMed/MEDLINE, PubMed Health. Phpartners, Haz-Map, and Household Products Database. This session will focus on where the how-to-use gems are hidden. We think you’re bound to learn something new. Attendees will leave the session with a better understanding on where to go in situations where they need to use the “self-teach” method of learning NLM Databases along with what the main features each database provides. No registration required.
