Frequent visitors to PubMed, the world’s largest source for biomedical information, will have noticed announcements this spring about a new PubMed (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). What can you expect from new PubMed? A more modern interface, more mobile responsiveness, and a new relevance search engine designed to bring you the most relevant, top-ranked results for your search (and more!). Fans of PubMed will be relieved that much of what they love about PubMed has stayed the same, it will just appear with a new look and feel.
Here are some ways to explore new PubMed, and to start using new PubMed:
- We are happy to provide a workshop for you (and your students or colleagues) on these new features and how to use them: contact us
- Prefer a quick self-guided tour? Explore using these handouts, PowerPoint slides, and quick tours.
- Interested in a deeper dive? View these 90 minute recordings on various aspects of PubMed, on topics like how medical subject headings and automatic term mapping work.
- Lastly, for quick help on questions on using almost every feature of new PubMed, visit PubMed’s User Guide.
Change is hard, but we’re here to help! Reach out with your questions and concerns.
