The Library has developed a new e-learning module for PubMed. PubMed is an important bibliographic database on biomedicine, health and life sciences.

PubMed is made publicly available by the US National Library of Medicine (NLM). It covers every aspect of medicine, including nutrition and health, veterinary science, environmental health, occupational health, biology, microbiology, biotechnology and toxicology.

In this module users learn:

  • How to execute a simple search in PubMed
  • How to use the MeSH database in PubMed
  • How to build a systematic search in PubMed

The module is interactive with exercises with feedback and also has instruction videos and a key-term glossary.
