Pat Auflick, director of the Goodstein Foundation Library, says that the sessions do fit well with many of the health sciences programs at the college, but anyone interested in health information is welcome.

“The third session is on PubMed. PubMed is the Web version of a medical database called MedLine. It has really much more in depth, scholarly information in the fields of medicine, dentistry, nutrition, nursing.”

Ms. Auflick says the PubMed is very helpful to people wanting to learn how to research medical topics and navigate the Medline database.
