On October 19, 2016, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will present the Webinar "Insider's Guide to Accessing NLM Data: Welcome to E-utilities for PubMed."

Want to do more with PubMed?
Want to extract just the PubMed data you need, in the format you want?
Dreaming of creating your own PubMed tool or interface, but don’t know where to start?

Join us for the first in the Insider’s Guide series of Webinars about more powerful and flexible ways of accessing NLM data, starting with an introduction to the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for PubMed and other NCBI databases.

This series is geared toward librarians and other information specialists who have experience using PubMed via the traditional Web interface, but now want to dig deeper. This class will start with the basics of APIs, before showing you how to get started using the E-utilities API to search and retrieve records from PubMed. The class will showcase specific tools and utilities that information specialists can use to work with E-utilities, which will help prepare you for future Insider’s Guide classes. We will finish by looking at some practical examples of E-utilities in the real world and hopefully inspire you to get out and put these lessons to use.

Date and time: Wednesday, October 19, 2016, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT
