  2. History and context…
  3. Context and planning…
  4. [1] Your work: cited more… A footnoted postcard?! Yes. It cites the 2005 IEEE study of 1,307,038 articles showing that articles in systems like Deep Blue… “…have consistently more citations, the advantage being 25%-250%
  5. [2] Safe forever (Preservation)… Level 1: Highest Well known formats w/open standards (e.g. TIFF); we will both preserve and migrate Level 2: Limited Well known, but not open, formats (e.g. Microsoft Word); we will preserve and, if we can, migrate Level 3: As-is 01000100111000 in, 01000100111000 out…
  6. [3] It’s simple… Deposit: Describe Your Item
  7. No, really. It is simple The license, in less than 50 words: It’s my work, and UM can distribute and preserve it via Deep Blue. Those are UM’s only rights, and they’re non-exclusive. I can distribute and preserve it too, and more besides, because the work’s still mine; if I used somebody else’s work in it, I got the necessary permissions.

  1. The 8-fold Path to Web Searching Power* * more of what you want, less of what you don’t Patricia F. Anderson June 20, 2007 pfa@umich.edu http://www.umich.edu/~pfa/pro/8fold/ © 2007 Regents of the University of Michigan. All rights reserved.
  2. Power Searching on the Web: Tips Quotation marks OR Parentheses Limit by site Limit by filetype + (plus sign) - (minus sign) ~ (tilde sign)
  3. Power Searching on the Web: Tips Quotation marks = Phrase searching OR = Concept groupings Parentheses = Multiple concept groups Limit by site Limit by filetype + (plus sign) = Stopword searching - (minus sign) = Exclude ~ (tilde sign) = Thesaurus or synonym searching
  4. Tip 1: Quotation marks for Phrase Searching This is most useful when the words to be searched are not very specific, have different meanings in various subject areas, when having the words adjacent to each other changes the meaning, or when it is important that the same word is repeated. “baby bottle tooth decay” “curve of monson” “head and neck cancers”
  5. Tip 1: Phrase Searching Results have fewer false positives.
  6. Tip 2: OR Use this when you want any of the terms, not all of the terms. Be sure to capitalize the word “or” so Google does not ignore it. “baby bottle tooth decay” OR “early childhood caries” OR “nursing caries” OR “milk caries” OR bbtd Child OR children OR youth OR teen OR kids
  7. Tip 2: Boolean OR Results have fewer false negatives.
  8. Tip 3: Concept group searching with parentheses Useful to group terms that should be processed together, at the same time and in the same way in the search, but which you want to combine with another concept or term. Question: Do sports drinks erode the teeth? Concept 1 = “sports drinks” Concept 2 = “teeth” Concept 3 = “erosion”
  9. Tip 3: Concept group searching with parentheses Note: This is most useful with complex questions, questions with many separate concepts, for which initial simple searches provide erratic quality results. EXAMPLE: Question: Do sports drinks erode the teeth? Concept 1 Terms = \"sports drinks\" OR gatorade OR \"isotonic solutions\" Concept 2 Terms = dental OR dentistry OR tooth OR teeth Concept 3 = erode OR erosion OR erosive OR \"tooth wear” OR caries
  10. Tip 3: Concept group searching with parentheses Question: Do sports drinks erode the teeth? Concept 1 Terms = \"sports drinks\" OR gatorade OR \"isotonic solutions\" Concept 2 Terms = dental OR dentistry OR tooth OR teeth Concept 3 = erode OR erosion OR erosive OR \"tooth wear” OR caries Can you put all those terms on one line like this? \"sports drinks\" OR gatorade OR \"isotonic solutions\" dental OR dentistry OR tooth OR teeth erode OR erosion OR erosive OR \"tooth wear” OR caries NO!!! There are three different ideas here. If you try this, you will get strange (& probably useless) results because Google won’t be able to tell them apart. Can you search each group separately, and then tell Google to mix and match the results of the 3 searches? I wish, but not yet.
  11. Tip 3: Concept group searching with parentheses So what can you do? This -- collect each group of terms by placing parentheses around them to show the beginning and end of a single concept group. Question: Do sports drinks erode the teeth? Concept 1 Terms = (\"sports drinks\" OR gatorade OR \"isotonic solutions”) Concept 2 Terms = (dental OR dentistry OR tooth OR teeth) Concept 3 = (erode OR erosion OR erosive OR \"tooth wear” OR caries) Becomes this: (\"sports drinks\" OR gatorade OR \"isotonic solutions\") (erosion OR erosive OR \"tooth wear\") (dental OR dentistry OR tooth OR teeth)
  12. Tip 3: Concept group searching with parentheses (\"sports drinks\" OR gatorade OR \"isotonic solutions\") (erosion OR erosive OR \"tooth wear\") (dental OR dentistry OR tooth OR teeth)
  13. Tip 3: Concept group searching with parentheses Note: You can use parentheses embedded within parentheses to describe complex concepts or streamline the use of repeated terms. “baby bottle tooth decay” OR ((“tooth decay” OR caries”) (“baby bottle” OR “early childhood” OR nursing OR milk OR bbtd OR ecc OR toddler))
  14. Tip 4: Limit by site This is useful when you want to control the quality of the search results, when you know a site that is likely to have what you need, and also when you want to find again a known document. Want government reports on oral health? \"oral health\" site:gov Want board review resources from the ADA, but without using their site search engine? (“national boards” OR “board review”) site:ada.org Remember a patient guide but not what organization released it? (mouthguards OR “mouth guards”) site:.org
  15. Tip 4: Limit by site (amoxil OR amoxicillin OR trimox or \"clavulanate potassium\") site:fda.gov
  16. Tip 5: Limit by filetype Especially useful when you have reason to suspect that the answer you need will be in a certain format, such as white papers, presentations, and technical standards. ((\"osteonecrosis of the jaw\" OR onj) (jaw OR maxilla OR mandible)) filetype:pdf (“oral hygiene” OR “oral prophylaxis”) filetype:ppt
  17. Tip 5: Limit by filetype (“oral hygiene” OR “oral prophylaxis”) filetype:ppt
  18. Tip 6: + (plus sign) = stopword search Use the plus sign to force the inclusion of stop words. Angle class +I malocclusion Use this to search foreign words with diacritics exactly as spelled. Émail fragile compared to +émail fragile
  19. Tip 6: + (plus sign) = stopword search Émail fragile compared to +émail fragile (phrase means “fragile enamel” in French)
  20. Tip 7: - (minus sign) Use the minus sign to exclude terms from results when there is a clustering of irrelevant results. This is most useful when you are new to searching a topic. tongue cancer -xxx -porn -pornography -paid craniofacial support -teens -youth -parents -child find dentist -site:.com
  21. Tip 7: - (minus sign) Demo of effectiveness of quick and dirty porn filter: tongue cancer -xxx -porn -pornography Results without filter = 1,530,000; with filter = 858,000
  22. Tip 8: ~ (tilde sign) Searches the selected term in thesaurus-mode (Google only). Results include a variety of related terms. ~child dental visits
  23. Tip 8: ~ (tilde sign) Searches the selected term in thesaurus-mode (Google only). Results include a variety of related terms. cancer survivor or ~cancer survivor
  24. More Search Strategy Tips Compare results from multiple search engines Use advanced search features Use concept and term suggestions Use reviewed search results/links Use special search engine features

  2. Science & Research on the Internet “Certainly what people bring to the internet, such as their interest in science and how closely they follow scientific discoveries, shapes their online science habits.” Horrigan, John. The Internet as a Resource for News and Information about Science. November 2006. http://www.pewinternet.org/PPF/r/191/report_dis play.asp
  3. Science & Research on the Internet “These 1,000 or so science blogs provide authoritative opinions about pressing issues in science, such as evolution or climate change, or aim to engage other scientists in open and frank discussions about the scientific literature or science policy. Because of their freewheeling nature, these blogs take scientific communication to a different level.” Bonetta, L. Scientists Enter the Blogosphere. Cell 129(3) 4 May 2007:443-445.
  4. Blogs Blog was originally short for Web Log, and were used mostly as online equivalents of diaries, journals, or logged entries on specific topics. Now blogs are used as content management systems, to create RSS feeds, inexpensive ways to design small web sites, and more.

  2. What is RSS? Colloquially referred to as Really Simple Syndication. “RSS is … used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a \"feed,\" \"web feed,\" or \"channel,\" contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.” RSS. Wikipedia: – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_(file_format)

Date/Time: April 17, 2007
Title: Staying Current with PubMed
Presenter: Patricia Anderson

 


Text of Slides:

  1. Staying Current Using PubMed Merle Rosenzweig, A.M.L.S. © 2007 Regents of the University of Michigan, Taubman Health Sciences Library. All rights reserved.
  2. Are you drowning in a Sea of Publications trying to keep up with the new journal literature ?
  3. You know that you can search Medline in PubMed for journal articles  from the medical and life science research literature, but you can do much more .
  4. PubMed’s My NCBI can help
  5. My NCBI allows you to: Save your search and view any new publications Receive new citations automatically by email Save searches as RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds
  6. You can connect to the University of Michigan’s PubMed Link via:
  7. The Dentistry Library Page PubMed
  8. Taubman Medical Library Page
  9. PubMed@UM
  10. PubMed with UM SFX journal links
  11. The University Library Page
  12. Find Database>pubmed>GO
  13. Pubmed (UM SFX Links)
  14. The University of Michigan’s PubMed provides a unique URL \"Uniform Resource Locator ”.
  15. The UM Direct PubMed Link http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f cgi?otool=umichlib
  16. What is MyNCBI ?
  17. My NCBI is a free tool that retains user information and preferences to provide customized services. It allows you to save searches, select filtering options, and set up automatic searches that are sent by email.
  18. To be able to use My NCBI, your Web browser must accept cookies. If your Web browser is set to block pop-ups, you will need to allow pop-ups from NCBI Web pages to use My NCBI.
  19. Registering with My NCBI
  20. The My NCBI box appears at the top right of the PubMed search screen. You must register to use My NCBI.
  21. Click on Register in the My NCBI box.
  22. Enter a user name (3 to 10 alpha-numeric characters) and a password (6 to 8 alpha- numeric characters).
  23. Choose a security question that allows your password to be reset, if necessary.
  24. Below the Security Question, you will see an image with 5 characters. Type the characters into the box provided; the characters are case sensitive.
  25. Enter an email address if you want to receive updates of search results periodically.
  26. When you provide an email address with your registration, you soon receive an email from NCBI requesting that you confirm your email address by clicking on the link that is provided. After confirming your email address, you can start setting up automatic emails for search alerts. Only one email address can be associated with each account.
  27. Outside Tool
  28. Outside Tool allows libraries to add a link from PubMed citations to a link for full-text available at their institution. These links are displayed as icons. When you click on the icon, you are directed to the available services for that citation that are available. These services might include access to electronic full text or information on local print holdings.
  29. MGetIt UM Outside Tool

  32. Selecting an Institution
  33. Signing In and Out
  34. Click on Sign In, in the My NCBI box. Enter your user name and password.
  35. A checked Keep me signed in unless I sign out box saves your My NCBI preferences on your computer in a persistent cookie file. If you are using a public computer, do not check the Keep me signed in unless I sign out.
  36. You may sign out at any time, regardless of how you signed in (session-only or automatic sign in).
  37. Saving a Search in My NCBI
  38. Run a search in PubMed while signed in to My NCBI.
  39. Sign In, Search, Click Go Search Signed In Click Go
  40. Click on Save Search, located next to the search box . A new window opens up. Answer the questions. Save Search Click OK. OK
