Highlights from PubMed Clinics of North America

April 15, 2011–PubMed has recently undergone some major changes and what a better way to learn about them then to have a hands-on training session! Thanks to NN/LM MAR, the LILRC Committee on Services to Health Sciences Libraries was able to run, PubMed Clinics of North America, with guest trainer Helen Tannenbaum, Communication and Outreach Coordinator.

Helen Tannenbaum teaches a PubMed Clinics of North America class at Farmingdale State College, Greenley Library, to 17 academic, public and hospital librarians from Long Island.

The day’s activities included exercises on how to locate articles, the process and procedure for subject indexing, and participants even participated in a scavenger hunt.
