PubMed Changes are Coming

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.

Upcoming Conference on Integrative Pediatric Medicine

The Strauss-Wisneski Indigenous and Integrative Medicine Collection will be co-sponsoring an upcoming conference on pediatric integrative medicine.  Health for the Whole Child: An Integrative Approach will take place on Wednesday, Oct 30, 2019 in Mt. Oxford Auditorium at Children’s Hospital Colorado.  This conference will include lectures, interactive panels, and breakout sessions.

Pediatric integrative health focuses on the enhancement of well-being of the whole child and uses a collaborative approach to health promotion, disease prevention, healing, and rehabilitation. The model builds on the elements of positive lifestyle habits, and other tools, to support the health of both child and family unit.  Join us to learn more about integrative health, an approach that offers expanded treatment options and complements conventional therapies.  Integrative health has the potential to revitalize meaning in practice, support our young patients, and enhance practitioner satisfaction.

Early Bird registration of $40 is available through October 16, 2019 and will increase to $50 after that date.  An online-only option is also available for $25.00.  All providers are welcome to attend as well anyone with an interest in integrative medicine.  CME, CNE, and CPE credit will be available.

This event is made possible by a grant from the Bard Family Foundation.
