Drug and Chemical Information 2. Finding Properties, Effects, and Interactions
Class Experience Level
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

This online, self-paced course is intended to introduce librarians to the NLM resources that provide in-depth drug and chemical information, from adverse effects to molecular properties, for healthcare professionals and researchers. Through hands-on exercises, learners will practice locating chemical properties, including structures and interactions, in PubChem; toxicity information in LiverTox and LactMed; toxicological reviews in Bookshelf; and the latest research about adverse effects in PubChem. Participants will practice their new skills in authentic problem-based scenarios focused on assisting library users with their clinical and research information needs.
