Happy birthday, PubMed!

birthday cake

The database everyone loves (and hates at times), PubMed, is turning 20!

“PubMed was first released two decades ago in January 1996 as an experimental database under the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) retrieval system. The word “experimental” was dropped from the Web site in April 1997, and on June 26, 1997, a Capitol Hill Press conference officially announced free MEDLINE access via PubMed.”

Pubmed 1996

It’s gone through several redesigns and refinements since 1997.  The staff at NLM and NCBI are constantly improving access, coverage, and ease of use for PubMed and have come up with several features that help searchers.  This article discusses several of these improvements.  Prior to 1997, access to MEDLINE was only available through paid services, such as GRATEFUL MED, DIALOG or in CD ROM format.  Many times users were charged by the minute, by the search, or by the citation to download.  Users had to have their search strategy planned out exactly, login, type it as quickly as possible and then log off while watching the charges add up.  Things have changed!

PubMed 2016

Happy birthday, PubMed!  You have made health sciences research so much easier in the past 20 years!

NLM exhibit “From DNA to Beer” now at Dental Library!

from dna to beer

The National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit “From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine and Industry” is now at the LSU School of Dentistry Library!  Come explore the history of biotechnology, and peruse our selection of related books and articles.  The Dental Library is located on the third floor of the Administration Building, and the exhibit will be there from June 20th-July 8th.

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.  Additional information about this exhibit can be found online:  https://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/about/exhibition/fromdnatobeer.html.

MICROBES—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages.

Scientists, in partnership with industry, have developed techniques to harness the powers of these microbes. In recent years, headline-grabbing technologies have used genetically modified bacteria to manufacture new medicines.

A glimpse into the past reveals a history of human enterprise that has adapted these tiny organisms for health and profit. This exhibition explores some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use life.

INNOPAC Maintenance Complete

The migration to our new INNOPAC server is complete. We hope you find speedier service from the system.

Please let us know if you find any errors or problems.
