The Health Sciences Libraries Webinar Series is a collaborative series intended to explore products and services provided by the National Library of Medicine through case studies. The HSL series aims to support the work of health sciences and hospital librarians as they serve their institutional communities. The webinars will explore NLM resources through real world examples provided by experienced librarians.
Each session includes unique learning objectives based on the featured webinar topic. An evaluation form will be sent to each participant following the presentation,. All sessions are offered as webcasts using WebEx, allowing for live participation through online chat. Sessions are recorded, closed captioned, and archived for later viewing.
- Identify National Library of Medicine products and services.
- Integrate National Library of Medicine products and services into workflows.
- Assist institutional community members in the selection and use of National Library of Medicine products and services.
For health sciences librarians looking for resources on the effects of drugs, the National Library of Medicine maintains two relevant databases: LactMed and LiverTox. Both of these databases are located in the NLM Bookshelf and are searchable through PubMed. This webinar will give a brief introduction to Bookshelf, LactMed and LiverTox. Using sample search requests from practicing health sciences librarians, we will explore these databases for information on:
• Substance Use Disorder and the effects of harm reduction medications on lactation and the nursing infant.
• Risk of acetaminophen toxicity and polypharmacy for the geriatric population.
