  3. 3. Some things remain the same.<br />You still access My NCBI via the “Sign In” link<br />from PubMed’s homepage.<br />
  4. 4. Login using either your Username & PW<br />OR via the eRA Login option<br />Remember:<br />If you’ve never created a My NCBI account, the<br />easiest option is to login using your eRA Login. <br />This choice automatically creates a My NCBI<br />account that is linked to your eRA Commons account.<br />If you already have a My NCBI account, you can <br />link it to your Commons account using the “Linked Account”<br />tool in My NCBI Preferences.<br />
  5. 5. Your personal identification on the PubMed<br />Homepage lets you know you’re signed in to <br />the system.<br />
  6. 6. Add and/or delete widgets<br />using these buttons .<br />This box… it’s a widget.<br />The new My NCBI interface displays a number of “widgets”, i.e.<br />boxes that do various tasks. Defaults include (but not limited to):<br /><ul><li>PubMed Search

  8. 8. Collections
  9. 9. My Bibliography</li></ul>Users can choose to add and/or delete widgets to customize their<br />My NCBI page, placing tools they use most here and getting rid<br />of those they find unhelpful.<br />
  10. 10. To build and/or add to “My Bibliography”:<br />Run a search in PubMed to yield desired results. <br />You can run this search either from the “Search <br />NCBI databases” widget (w/PubMed selected in<br />the dropdown box) in My NCBI, or you can start <br />in PubMed itself. <br />In this example, the search is run using the widget.<br />

  14. 14. Verify your selection and<br />click on the “Save” button.<br />
  15. 15. You will then be taken back to the display screen<br />in PubMed of the citation(s) you chose to add to <br />your “My Bibliography”.<br />To verify the addition(s) to your “My Bibliography”<br />visit My NCBI (click on link)…<br />
  16. 16. … and note the addition(s) to your list.<br />As in the past, citations added to “My Bibliography” immediately update in the corresponding “Publications” list in eRA Commons. This allows you to select those needed for quarterly reports, future applications, etc.<br />
