With regards to the NIH Public Access Policy, I'm curious as to what
suggestions fellow medical librarians are giving to researchers related
to workflow and the latest requirement (the May 25 deadline) that PMCIDs
must be cited. In particular I'm thinking of a researcher who has
thousands of references in his RefWorks or EndNote library, and who now
wants to go and add the PMCIDs. Is there any way to automate the process
of drawing these in from PubMed to already existing records? Do any of
the citation software products "refresh" PubMed records, and overlay
with the new records containing the PMCIDs? Has anyone discussed this
with RefWorks et al? (We're a RefWorks institution, so personally I'm
interested in that particular product.)
I had a researcher in just after 5 PM on Friday who was just
flabbergasted by this new requirement (having just become aware of it)
and short of finding the 2008 citations on his grant and checking them
against PubMed, editing the records, etc. I didn't have any better
advice for him. 
Any suggestions?
