Databases Beyond PubMed: March’s Library Lunchtime Learning

Choosing the right tool for the job is just as important in the library as it is in the clinic. PubMed/MEDLINE is a reliable and extensive resource, but it may not always be the appropriate one for your information need. During March’s Library Lunchtime Learning session, we’ll examine several other databases that could be appropriate to use in different circumstances.

Databases Beyond PubMed

March 17, 12-1 p.m., Computer Laboratory, 4th floor Library, Resource Center Building

March 23, 12-1 p.m., Copping Room (2309), LSU School of Dentistry

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to rpremo@lsuhsc.edu with your name and department; however, drop-ins are welcome!
