Contact: MLA Webcast
Contact: - https://www.mlanet.org/store - All region
This webcast will introduce information professionals to some of the emerging trends in biomedical research and health care environments that present new opportunities for partnership, collaboration, and support. Translational science, e-science, and electronic health records are characterized by large amounts of information and data. These offer new and expanded roles for information professionals in data management, curation, sharing and integration; new models for scholarly publication; new ways to collaborate with Clinical and Translational Science Award centers and their constituents; and new opportunities to educate health and information technology professionals in the meaningful use of health information via electronic health record systems.

Spotlight on NLM Resources: Self Help Resources / Just Enough Learning

Self-Help Resources in NLM Databases The archive of the September 2013 Spotlight on National Library of Medicine Resources is a perfect for Public Librarians. It focuses 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. The recording covers a smorgasbord of NLM databases: MedlinePlus, PubMed/MEDLINE, PubMed Health. Phpartners, Haz-Map, and Household Products Database. The recording focuses on where the how-to-use gems are hidden.  Even if you’ve been using PubMed or any of the other databases being covered  even before the birth of the Internet, 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.
