Class on the New PubMed

The Library is hosting a class on the new PubMed!

The class will take place on Friday, February 7th from 10:30-11:30am in the Isché Library Computer Classroom (Room 405, Resource Center Building)

PubMed has recently introduced a new design that includes changes to its appearance and features. The Library class will teach you how to:

  • Activate the default filters or customize the filter menu.
  • Use the Results by Year graph to see trends in literature or refine your search results by publication year.
  • Use the Advanced search page to search for terms in a specific field, see the search details, review your search history and combine searched to create complex search strings.
  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography.
  • Create an email alert.

Email or call 504-568-6100 to register.

Drop-ins welcome!

RefWorks in 15 minutes

If you have 15 minutes then you have time to get a quick introduction to a free information management tool called RefWorks.

RefWorks in 15 minutes will be offered online January 6, 12, 18 & 27th. Register here.

Similar to EndNote, RefWorks lets you search, organize and manage your references. Since it lives “in the cloud”, once you create your free account**, you can access it from any computer at any location.

Some things RefWorks can do:

  • Format a paper or bibliography for you in the citation style you need.
  • Instantly add references as you type a paper in MS Word
  • Search PubMed (or another database) from within RefWorks
  • Share references with other people

A live RefWorks class will be taught by local RefWorks expert Molly Knapp on Thursday, February 10th, 2011 from 10-11 am. Email for more information.

**RefWorks is available free to LSUHSC students, faculty and staff.
