Welch Library Classes

Welch Medical Library is offering two free classes on Tuesday, April 29.

Noon: Learn to Use Welch Library Resources and Services Effectively. Topics include accessing the library's 5,000+ full-text journals from home or office, using WelDoc and the JHU Catalog to request electronic articles and books, searching for articles by subject and requesting instruction and individual consultations with your department's assigned Welch librarian.

1 to 3 p.m.: Evidence-Based Care. The course promotes the use of scientific literature in the clinical decision process, with a fuller understanding of the varying levels of evidence that individual studies provide. Participants will learn to develop EBM-formatted clinical questions, identify EBM resources that best vet the literature and indicate its levels of evidence, form effective search strategies and locate practice guidelines, systematic reviews, clinical trials and other EBM information. The Cochrane Library, PubMed Clinical Queries and InfoPOEMs are among the resources to be covered.

Pre-registration is required for both classes. Go to: assregistration.cfm. Both classes take place in Lab 1, in the 2024 Building, in East Baltimore.
