Performing nutrition-related searches in PubMed can be challenging. This hands-on session will examine the challenges and suggest techniques for doing better searches on topics related to nutrition, diet, and foods in general.
Since the class was taught in July, we at Hardin Library and our users have gotten access to Embase (“The European equivalent of PubMed”). Embase looks to be a big improvement over PubMed for nutrition searching, and a major focus of the class will be comparing the two databases.
The class will be taught by Janna Lawrence and Eric Rumsey, both of whom are experienced in searching nutrition and other subjects in PubMed (and learning Embase!).
