Reference: National Library of Medicine Unveils “NLM Learning Resources Database”

From the National Library of Medicine Technical Bulletin:

2016-05-12_15-02-37The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is announcing the launch of  the new NLM Learning Resources Database, making it easy to find educational resources for NLM products and services.

These materials include videos, tutorials, and handouts on products such as PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, Unified Medical Language System, and many more. Now you can find resources using one interface rather than searching different areas of the NLM Web site. An API is also available to auto-populate NLM learning resources on your Web site.

The database currently holds all of the resources previously listed on the former Distance Education Resources Web page. There is a permanent redirect from this page to the NLM Learning Resources Database.

Additional resources are being added on an ongoing basis.

The NLM Learning Resources database can be searched or filtered using:

  • keywords in the search box
    • to retrieve a list of all resources, search an asterisk (*) in the search box
    • a phrase in the search box is treated as separate words ORed together
  • subject or product
  • Date Last Revised
  • archived materials
