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.
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.
Do you keep hearing and reading about EndNote from the Health Sciences Library and wondering what it’s all about? Or if it’s the right citation management tool for you? Well we’ve put together a handy comparison chart for some of the major citation management tools that are available to you so that you can try to answer those very questions.
Take a look at the different functionality offered by the various citation management tools that are available. Keep in mind that the Health Sciences Library primarily supports EndNote, since that is the software that the University of Colorado Anschutz provides for it’s affiliates. If you want to know more about how to get access to the EndNote software through the University, visit this website: https://www1.ucdenver.edu/offices/office-of-information-technology/software
What’s the difference you ask? Take a look at the chart below to see some of the ways that DynaMed Plus is different from DynaMed and what’s available in both. Once you’ve tried it out, let us know what you think using the TellUs form!
Please welcome the newest employee in Education and Reference, Jason Wardell. Jason started on November 15th! If you see him around the library or hear from him on AskUs make sure to give him a warm welcome!
Learn a little bit more about Jason in his short biography:
I was born in Chicago, but have called Colorado my home since 1996. I graduated from Colorado State University in 2007 with a BA in English Literature, and again from Metropolitan State University in 2011 with a BA in Journalism. Today, I live in Denver with my wife, Mindi, and our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Penny. I’m presently enrolled in the School of Library and Information Management at Emporia State University in the 2017 Denver cohort, and I aspire to work in an academic library to fulfill my dream of never leaving school. Outside of the library, I host a weekly pub quiz for Geeks Who Drink, provide website and marketing support for Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, and am very passionate about certain flavors of La Croix.
