Having trouble keeping up with the topics you are most interested in?

Laura Brown, clinical librarian, will be reprising her Keeping Current class which she regularly teaches during Learning and Personal Development Week.

Attendees will get an overview of PubMed which will include setting up a MyNCBI account, and performing a PubMed search on a topic of their interest and saving it to their account. In addition, attendees will be given an introduction to EndNote and shown how to load search results from PubMed into their library, obtain the full text of select articles, organize a personal library (divide citations into groups), and email a compressed library to themselves.

The sessions are scheduled for July 13th from 12 to 1 p.m. and September 14th from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Graff Medical and Scientific Library (Library Conference Room, G112). Laptops will be provided. Please visit here to register.

The OpticBook A300 scanner located behind the front desk in the library is available to our users. Please ask library staff for assistance.
