PUB MED TRAINING


PubMed 1 - Basics
PubMed provides access to MEDLINE, the National Library of Medicine's database of citations and abstracts in the fields of medicine, nursing, health care systems, preclinical sciences, and other biomedical topics. During this class, participants will be able to do a basic keyword search in PubMed, apply filters/limits to streamline the search results, print, save, and email citations, access full-text articles, and create a MyNCBI account. Participants will learn how to find a citation with partial information using “Single Citation Matcher” and conduct an evidence-based search with “Clinical Queries.” Practice exercises will provide participants with hands-on experience during class.

PubMed 2 - Advanced
During this class, participants will be able to do PubMed Advanced Searches using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and subheadings, Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT), and other more advanced search techniques. Detailed explanation of all filters and management options will be offered such as formatting citations to export into Citation Manager programs (RefWorks/EndNote). Using their MyNCBI accounts, participants will learn how to set up alerts when new publications of interest are published, create bibliographies, and save searches for future use. Practice exercises will provide participants with hands-on experience during class. It is recommended that you register for this class AFTER you have taken the PubMed Basics class.

CITATION MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS


EndNote
EndNote stores references you collect from databases, library catalogues or create manually. The program automatically formats the saved references in any standard citation format. Using EndNote, you can cite as you type your paper and create your bibliography by pulling from your stored references. EndNote is also capable of saving full-text articles (in PDF format and/or in text), organizing image files, searching online and much more.

RefWorks
RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager. This is an introductory class in which participants will learn how to use RefWorks to create personal databases of imported references from online databases and how to store, retrieve, and format them for publication. If you spend more than an hour formatting your references for your paper's bibliography then you are working way too hard. We will show you how citing within your paper and creating your paper's bibliography can take only minutes.
