PubMed Instructional Materials (for Trainers)

Here is a list of training material for PubMed, MeSH in MEDLINE/PubMed, My NCBI, and LinkOut

You are welcome to use and adapt these resources for your own training, but please:

  1. Include a link to the original source (at the U.S. National Library of Medicine or the National Network of Libraries of Medicine) when possible, and
  2. Check for changes to PubMed and related NLM products regularly.

Do not hesitate to contact us with suggestions for additions and changes.

Note: SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model, see tutorial) is a standard that allows you to easily import learning objects into Course Management Systems (CMSs). The SCORM packages linked from this page can be imported directly into CMSs like Moodle. See your CMS documentation for more information.
