  • 3. “Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums”: some shared interests
  • 4. Shared interest: neutral, accurate info about NIH
  • 5. Making medical info in Wikipedia as good as it can be Recent evaluations* of Wikipedia’s content show it’s:      Fairly comprehensive Fairly reliable Hard to read Weaker in some topic areas than others As with other comparable encyclopedias, not as evidencebased as you’d like it to be** So let’s roll up our sleeves! * http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?linkname=pubmed_pubmed&from_uid=23432369 ** http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19209572
  • 6. Evidence-based enough? Information that:  Systematically aimed to minimize bias in finding and interpreting information  Relies on research that also minimizes bias – systematic reviews whenever possible  Keeps up-to-date Learn more here www.pubmed.gov/health
  • 7. PubMed Health Aims to:  Help people find systematic reviews  Understand what they find Curates:  Systematic reviews + quality assessments of them  Information based on systematic reviews  Educational materials Learn more: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/nd11/nd11_pm_health.html
  • 8. Systematic reviews at NLM Systematic reviews of intervention at PubMed Health – plus results of simultaneous search of PubMed filter Learn about finding systematic reviews on any type of health question here: (link) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/finding-systematic-reviews/
  • 9. Keep up with new research & learn more PubMed Health systematic reviews & other info here (link): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/new/  Learn to use MyNCBI for keeping up with other PubMed searches (link): http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL88E9E5EA3BECE0D7 More YouTube tutorials at NCBINLM channel (link): http://www.youtube.com/user/NCBINLM/videos?view=1
  • 10. Getting full text articles  Look for PMC, “free full article”, or click on publisher logo in PubMed (see YouTube tutorial on how, with extra tips)  Search for full exact title on Google – may be on university website  Look up publisher website in NLM catalog (click on journal name) and try there  Try your local library  Get an NLM library card and come to the Reading Room (link): http://www.nlm.nih.gov/psd/ref/guide/rrhome.html
