Free NLM Webinar “LinkOut for Libraries: From Icons to Full Text and Everything in Between” on October 18

(via Rebecca Brown, University of Utah)

This is the National Library of Medicine webinar for which you’ve been waiting. Receive answers to the following questions and more.

  • Have you wondered why you see duplicate icons on citations in PubMed?
  • Or why you don’t see icons where you expect?
  • Are you switching vendors and don’t know how that will affect your service?
  • Were you suddenly given the responsibility for your library’s LinkOut account and don’t know where to start?

We will go back to the basics of LinkOut and show you how to get the most of your library’s service. Take an inside look at the three NLM linking services, LinkOut, Outside Tool, and LinkOut Local, and how they differ. Learn why multiple icons display on citations in PubMed and how to see only the ones you want. Following a 30-minute presentation, LinkOut experts will be available to answer your questions.
