The courses are free for the University of Helsinki students and staff, and also for HUCH staff.
If there is space also participants outside of the above mentioned groups are welcome. Then we charge 20€/hour, i.e. 40€/2h course.
The workshop contains a short introduction to PubMed's more advanced functions:
Logic of the artificial intelligence of the PubMed search
The most used search filters
Saving search results in the PubMed folder and division of the folder.
Automatic alerts (to e-mail or as the RRS input)
Building of the PubMed search with the MeSH browser.
After the introduction it is possible to make an own search or given exercises. (The exercises present more properties in PubMed.) In the course, two the information specialists are present. Some of the contents are independently studied by using the instruction videos (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/disted/pubmed.html).
