  3. Click the icon in the upper left and select “Settings”

New PubMed: Tips and Tutorials

 

Image-New PubMed home page

 

 

 

PubMed changed its look and user experience earlier this Spring. While it still offers the same great search features – it is quite a bit different. To learn about the new features, check out the Network of the National Library of Medicine’s (NNLM) Tutorials and Recordings for PubMed. There you will find quick video tours, PowerPoint presentations, and even classes.

Still have questions about the New PubMed?  Contact the Health Sciences Library for additional assistance. We can provide answers, workshops, as well as PubMed instruction for your course. 

 

 

 

OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center (EJC) Platform Update

OhioLINK will release the latest update of the Electronic Journal Center (EJC) platform on September 30th. The EJC will be unavailable between 7 and 9 p.m. while the platform is updated.

This release includes three major changes:

  • a new user interface with minor changes to functionality, including more ways to search on the List of Journals page
  • the discontinuation of the MyEJC feature
  • additional support for WCAG 2.1 (Accessibility Tools for ADA)

While EJC 6.1 is not yet fully compliant with WCAG 2.1, per OhioLINK policy, there is an exception on file with the Ohio State University Digital Accessibility Office. If a library user with a disability experiences difficulty accessing an OhioLINK application, they should contact the OH-TECH Digital Accessibility Team: https://www.ohiolink.edu/content/accessibility

New PubMed Now Available

A new version of PubMed is now available by clicking on “Click here to try the New PubMed!” in the current version of PubMed.  The New PubMed will become the default in spring 2020 and will eventually replace the legacy version.

Be aware that once you click on the link to New PubMed it will become your default on that device or browser with a link to return to Legacy PubMed. 

The UC Libraries’ PubMed links that connect UC full text with PubMed references is not changing. 

The New PubMed design has a more consistent look and feel throughout and a responsive layout compatible with any screen size.  It includes the same features (though some are in different locations) and more.

A few of the New PubMed features include:

  • The ability to cite a reference in AMA, MLA, APA, or NLM format style and then copy or download that citation.
  • The reference abstract and full record view may include the article references, similar articles, and the PubMed Central articles that have cited that article
  • The ability to filter to references with ‘Associated Data’. These references include a link to other NLM or NCBI databases such as ClinicalTrials.gov, GEO (Gene Expression Omnibus), or SRA (Sequence Read Archive) that include data to view and/or download.

For a quick preview and description of the New PubMed, see the NLM 2109 Technical Bulletin November-December article The New PubMed is Here.

September 2019, Vol. 1

On behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the Donald C.

HSL upgrades:

  • Over the summer, the electrical engineers were able to finalize the upgrades of lights on the R, E and G levels of the library
  • New power outlets were installed on the R-Level of the library.
  • At the request of HSGA representatives from last year, the HSL purchased four (4) new ergonomic stand-up tables that are located in the Computer Lab.
  • In mid-September the HSL Circulation Desk students will begin offering scheduled 20-minute walking tours of the HSL Library and Winkler Center.  The tour will include, but is not limited to information on equipment that can be checked out, HSL IT Help Desk services, how to navigate the Computer Lab and information on the HSL’s Electronic Classroom.  Look for more information about the tours in October.
