PubMed Changes are Coming

March Updates

By the end of March, the Strauss Health Sciences Library will transition to only linking to the new PubMed interface. So when you access PubMed from the Library, you will directed to the new interface. If you would like to access the legacy interface again before its retirement, you can use the banner in the new PubMed interface to return to the legacy view.

At some point this Spring or Summer, the National Library of Medicine will retire the legacy interface. We will post more specific information about that as we receive it.

If you have any questions about how to use the new PubMed interface, please AskUs!

February Updates

New features have been added to the new PubMed interface!

Items Per Page (see 1)

Display options now include items per page. Ten, twenty, fifty, one hundred, or two hundred results may be displayed per page.

New Sort Options: Publication Date (see 2), Reverse Sort Order (see 3)

In addition to Best match and Most recent, results may now be sorted by publication date either in ascending or descending order.

Download Results by Year as a CSV File (see 4)

The file will include the search query, the year, and the associated record count.

Similar Articles can now be displayed on a new page of results

Clicking “see all similar articles” (see 5) on any article abstract page will open a new results page listing all similar articles.

This was written by Sam, you can contact AskUs with questions.

November Updates

A bit behind schedule but finally here, you can now find the new PubMed interface from the current PubMed browser.

Find the new PubMed interface

The new interface was built using modern web standards with a responsive layout, so it works more effectively on cell phones and tablets.

The updated Best Match sort uses a machine learning algorithm to elevate the most relevant articles to the top of your results list.

Starting in Spring 2020, this new interface will be the default for all PubMed users.

Read more about the changes to the interface from the NLM Technical Bulletin.

Have questions or feedback about the new PubMed interface? Contact NLM with your PubMed Labs Feedback.

September Updates

The new PubMed is going live this month! Are you ready?

We will use this space to keep you updated on the changes that occurring and provide tips and tricks for using the new interface. You can interact with the beta version of the new PubMed by visiting PubMed Labs. As you use the new interface, please provide NLM with your PubMed Labs Feedback as they will continue to make improvements to the interface until it becomes the default in January 2020.

Keep in mind that the beta interface is not currently a replacement for the current version of PubMed since it is not the complete database in regards to content or functionality yet.

Here are the most recent features that have been added to the new PubMed interface:

  • Filters have been added to narrow results by article type, text availability, publication date, species, language, sex, subject, journal category and age.
  • The Health Sciences Article Linker has been added! You can now get to our library holdings from the beta PubMed version.

Keep an eye on the library homepage for information about the new PubMed and quick links to access the site.

July Updates

In Fall/Winter 2019, PubMed will be undergoing some changes to the interface. If you want to see some of the changes that are coming before the current version of PubMed is replaced, you can visit PubMed Labs, the experimental platform that has some of the major updates already available.

Wondering what’s new? Here are some of the updated features:

Enhanced Search Results

The new version of PubMed (currently PubMed Labs) will have an enhanced relevant sort option, named Best Match, that ranks search results according to several relevance signals, including an article’s popularity, its publication date and type, and its query-document relevant score.

The search results page will now automatically include highlighted text fragments from the article abstract that are selected based on relevance to the search.

Responsive Design

Have you ever tried to use PubMed on your phone or tablet? The current version doesn’t work very well, but the new version of PubMed will feature a mobile-first responsive layout that offers better support for smaller device screens. The new interface will be compatible with any screen size no matter how you access PubMed.

Want to learn more about the new PubMed interface/PubMed Labs? Visit the NLM Technical Bulletin , where this information was taken from, for more details.

Preservation Week – April 26-May 2, 2020

This year’s Preservation Week is April 26 to May 2. The first national preservation survey, conducted in 2004 by Heritage Preservation, revealed that a large portion of the collections in American libraries, museums, and archives was in need of treatment to prevent and reverse deterioration. In 2010, the American Library Association, in partnership with the Library of Congress, Institute of Library and Museum Services, American Institute for Conservation, Society of American Archivists, and Heritage Preservation, sponsored the first annual Preservation Week to raise awareness of the need and promote preservation not just in institutional collections, but also in the collections of individuals, families, and communities. Institutions are encouraged to celebrate Preservation Week by doing at least one thing to raise awareness of the need for preservation, inspire action to preserve collections, call attention to the role of libraries, archives and museums in the preservation of our cultural heritage, and promote preservation resources.

The theme for the 10th annual Preservation Week is Preserving Oral History. It has a dual meaning, both the action of preserving recollections and experiences that would otherwise be lost, and the physical preservation of the media on which they are recorded. Free Preservation Week activities and events, including webinars, are available at the American Library Association’s Association for Library Collections and Technical Services’ website. Programs from previous years are also available at the site, as well as a variety of resources. One of these, Saving Your Stuff, is a comprehensive list for the general public of the care and handling of most media that could make up a personal, family, or community collection.
