Description: With a hands-on approach, this class will show attendees how to use the features of PubMed effectively. Attendees will be able to describe the contents of PubMed; formulate basic search strategies; display, print, and save results in various formats; revise and refine searches; and use special features such as Related Articles, Link to journals, Citation Matcher, and Clinical Queries. The instructor will demonstrate online searches, and students, at computers connected to the Internet, will be invited to follow along. Time for individual practice will be provided. The course is also available as a four-week Web-based asynchronous class via Moodle for 6.0 CE credits; students will spend about 1-2 hours per week on class work.
