Have you ever wanted to learn more effective ways to find information on environmental health or hazardous chemicals? Do you want to learn more about what’s available from the National Library of Medicine beyond PubMed? Then the free online class Discovering TOXNET may be of interest to you.

TOXNET is a web-based system of databases covering hazardous chemicals, environmental health, toxic releases, chemical nomenclature, poisoning, risk assessment and regulations, and occupational safety and health.

You will get the chance to explore TOXNET and other NLM environmental health databases through videos, guided tutorials, and discovery exercises. The class is taught online in thirteen independent modules.

The first module, Introduction to TOXNET, is required. The others are all optional. The optional modules cover TOXLINE, ChemIDplus, TRI, TOXMAP, Hazardous Substances Data Bank, IRIS, Haz-Map, LactMed, WISER, CHEMM, REMM, LiverTox, and more.

This class is designed for health or environmental sciences professionals and health sciences librarians interested in unlocking the information in TOXNET and the other environmental health and toxicology resources. You will work at your own pace with instructors available to answer questions and provide assistance.
