This class will assist you in keeping current with new literature in your field. It will save you time by allowing you to save searches and search results (citations), and will facilitate collaboration by letting you create shared citation sets.
Prerequisite: It is recommended that you have already attended the PubMed Basics Hands-On class, or are familiar with the basics of searching PubMed.
PLEASE NOTE: This class is limited to 16 participants. A waiting list will be created, if necessary, for an additional class.
Supervisors: Please encourage your staff to attend if appropriate.
* Do you want to save your PubMed search(es) and receive e-mail updates as new relevant citations are added to PubMed?
* Did you know you could permanently store citations you find from a PubMed search?
* Do you want to share a list of citations with colleagues?
* Are you interested in customizing the PubMed display such that searches are “filtered” into categories of your choice?
* Are you interested in keeping track of searches run and citations viewed during the previous 6 months?
* Want to learn how to create an online CV using My NCBI?
If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then please come to the Sheldon Margen Public Health Library’s PubMed My NCBI Hands-On class!
Topics covered will include:
1. How to register for a My NCBI account
2. How to save searches and have PubMed periodically re-run the search and automatically e-mail you new citations
3. How to permanently save and share citations in My NCBI
4. How to view your PubMed search history in My NCBI
5. How to set up search filters in PubMed, so search results are sorted into your desired categories (e.g., age groups, citations that link to other databases, etc.)
6. Other features of My NCBI
These hands-on training sessions are free to CDPH employees. Please obtain your supervisor’s approval to attend.
New! Attendees will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the class, if they register before the class start.
