PubMed Changes are Coming

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.

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.

New printing system arrives at the Health Sciences Library!

Graphic-Wireless Printing

We’re excited to reveal a new self-serve print system in the library. Users will be able to pay for print and copy jobs via credit card right at the printer locations.  Prices will remain the same, at .10/page for black and white and .25/page for color.

Wireless printing will also be available and better than ever. You’ll be able to send jobs to our library printers from anywhere and pick them up when it’s convenient for you!  Print jobs will remain available for up to 24 hours. There are multiple ways to print:

  • from workstations in the library,
  • from your own laptop (via wireless),
  • email files as an attachment, or
  • direct uploads to the PrintMe cloud.

Enjoy fast and easy print job retrieval at any of the print/copy release stations in the library. Simply scan the barcode for the job from your mobile device or key in in the document ID number. You can also print files directly from a USB drive or from cloud storage location. View a print and cost preview prior to printing, with the ability to change print options such as number of copies, pages to print, color printing, and more!

As part of this change, the library will be converting to a new card system for cash customers. The old copy cards issued by the library will be going away. As soon as possible, please use up any credit you have on old cards.  A new card dispensing machine will be located on first floor. This machine will accept cash only (no coins), and will replace all cash services at the library’s Service Desk.

Note: the older black and white student printer system that is used through accounts administered by the campus bookstore is still in place.
