Are you trying to do more with PubMed? Do you need to extract just relevant PubMed data, in the format you want? Are you dreaming of creating your own PubMed tool or interface, but you don’t know where to start? Join the National Library of Medicine for the first in theInsider’s Guide series of webinars about more powerful and flexible ways of accessing NLM data. 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.

The initial webinar, titled “Welcome to E-utilities for PubMed”, will take place from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST on Wednesday, October 19. The class is primarily an introduction to Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for PubMed and other NCBI databases. We will start with the very 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 also showcase some specific tools and utilities that information specialists can use to work with E-utilities, helping to prepare you for subsequent 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.
