Course Description:  PubMed Expert Searching: Using PubMed to Get
Advanced Results
Expert searching includes more sophisticated use of PubMed tools such
as field qualifiers, the preview/index feature, creation of hedges in
cubby, and creating links for a library web page. Greater knowledge of
the Medline database and indexing vocabulary is also necessary in
making expert search decisions. The class takes on a train-the-trainer
focus to help participants translate these advanced searching
techniques to other users. The class builds upon the user's own
knowledge of searching to use PubMed more effectively. (approved for 4
MLA CE contact hours).
