Webinar Alert: Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents … PubMed, PubMed Central, and Medlineplus
Do you support health science students? Are you on the hunt for another non-Google tool for health questions from the general public? Maybe you’ve heard that PubMed, PubMed Central and MedlinePlus are great sources for reliable medical information, but you’re not sure which site is best for your needs. If so, please attend our webinar on December 9 at 12 pm (EST). A health sciences librarian will provide an overview of PubMed, PubMed Central, and MedlinePlus with some searches and links to additional information. This session is designed to be a basic introduction for non-medical librarians, but librarians from all settings are welcome to attend.

She is the liaison librarian for nursing, biology, public health education, nutrition, communication sciences and disorders, nanoscience, and genetic counseling. She has a BA in French, a BA in Humanities, and an MLIS from the University of Texas at Austin.
