“Thanks for the great course. It was extremely helpful and has increased my confidence in not only teaching PubMed, but also in my general use. The instructional design portion increased my understanding of the process and provided great ideas on how to make teaching PubMed relevant to the students as well as keeping them focused and engaged."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. I came into the sessions with what I would say was an intermediate level of knowledge and facility of use with PubMed and I feel that the sessions really bumped up my skill level.”
