NLM Webinar Series: "Insider’s Guide to Accessing NLM Data: EDirect for PubMed". NLM Tech Bull. 2017 Jan-Feb;(414):b6.
Beginning February 21, 2017, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will present the three-part Webinar series, "Insider’s Guide to Accessing NLM Data: EDirect for PubMed."
This series of workshops will introduce new users to the basics of using EDirect to access exactly the PubMed data you need, in the format you need. Over the course of three 90-minute sessions, students will learn how to use EDirect commands in a Unix environment to access PubMed, design custom output formats, create basic data pipelines to get data quickly and efficiently, and develop simple strategies for solving real-world PubMed data-gathering challenges. No prior Unix knowledge is required; novice users are welcome!
