  • Changes in PubMed Database

    Coming soon: New PubMed

    Changes in PubMed's look and feel are tentatively scheduled for May 18th. The Library created a guide that highlights those changes and new features.

    If you have used NLM’s PubMed in the last year, you have probably seen the banners announcing the new PubMed interface. On or about May 18th, the new interface will become the default option for PubMed; for some time after that, the legacy version will remain available.

    The updated version of PubMed will offer new display, navigation and output features in a responsive design that facilitates mobile access, including to the full text when available from the publisher, PubMed Central (PMC) or your library. Some of the new features include:

    On the results page:

    • Abstract “snippets” for more efficient scanning of results.
    • “Cite” and “Share” links with each citation for easy capture or sharing of a single citation.
    • Left-side filter menu with new “Associated data” filter, and additional publication type choices.

    On the “abstract view” page for each citation:

    • A right-side menu including in-page navigation, link-out/full-text options (Drexel’s “Get It” linking will appear when we make this our default PubMed choice).
    • Cite and Share options; the Cite function will display the citation in AMA, MLA, APA or NLM formats, or download the citation in .nbib format (used for EndNote, Mendeley, etc.).
    • Similar citations.
    • Cited By: articles in PubMed Central that cite the current article.

    The default search option will have enhanced “synonymy” and British/American mapping, and unlimited truncation. Advanced search features, including MeSH searching and field-specific searching may look a bit different, but will still be available.

    You can preview the new version of PubMed at https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/, or click through the announcement banner from the PubMed start page. For more information about using the new PubMed search interface see https://libguides.library.drexel.edu/newpubmed or consult with Janice Masud-Paul.

    Assistant Dean Gives Guest Lecture

    On April 13, 2020, Veronica Carey, PhD, dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and associate clinical professor in the Counseling and Family Therapy Department, offered a diversity, equity and inclusion awareness guest lecture to two separate courses. The first was HSCI 315 Current Issues in Health, a course being taught by Meg Lockard, PhD, a clinical professor for Health Sciences department, and the second for the Macy Undergraduate Leadership Fellows Program lead by Kim McClellan, EdD, an associate clinical professor in undergraduate nursing.

    There was a total of 29 students respective of the two courses. Carey gave students an opportunity to distinguish between race, ethnicity and culture, and to discuss personal incidences of discrimination and how each incident was managed, the lessons learned, and fellow students showed support for each other. The goal of the lecture was not only to increase awareness of the topic, but also to demonstrate the best way to manage future employment situations where individuals, clients, patients, etc. may be vastly different from themselves and how will each student navigate these situations in an unbiased service delivery while supporting the individual in their healthcare goals.
