The collections described in this Directory database provide research and reference services to scholars interested in the history of the health sciences. Some of the subjects include: dentistry, veterinary medicine, nursing, biomedical sciences, military medicine, and pharmacy. While the Directory is by no means exhaustive, it serves to draw attention to the depth and variety of history of medicine collections available to researchers. In the future, we expect that more institutions will wish to be included.
Three dimensional structures provide a wealth of information on the biological function and the evolutionary history of macromolecules. They can be used to examine sequence-structure-function relationships, interactions, active sites, and more.
Citing Medicine provides assistance to authors in compiling lists of references for their publications, to editors in revising such lists, to publishers in setting reference standards for their authors and editors, and to librarians and others in formatting bibliographic citations.
Coffee Break is a resource at NCBI that combines reports on recent biomedical discoveries with use of NCBI tools. The result is an interactive tutorial that tells a biological story. Each report is based on a discovery reported in one or more articles from the recently published peer-reviewed literature. After a brief introduction that sets the work described into a broader context, the report focuses on how a molecular understanding can provide explanations of observed biology and lead to therapies for diseases.
The Learning Resources Database is a catalog of interactive tutorials, videos, online classes, finding aids, and other instructional resources on National Library of Medicine (NLM) products and services. Resources may be available for immediate use via a browser or downloadable for use in course management systems.
Health Services Research Information Central (HSRIC) is a web portal and current awareness service of information on health services research. Alerts the communities to meetings, webinars, new web-born reports (analyses, statistics), datasets, and general news. Currently contains over 3,000 items.
This resource was retired on September 14, 2021 and is no longer updated.
LitCovid is a curated literature hub for tracking up-to-date scientific information about the 2019 novel Coronavirus. The articles are updated daily and are further categorized by different research topics (e.g. Long Covid) and geographic locations for improved access.
NCBI Pathogen Detection integrates bacterial pathogen genomic sequences originating in food, environmental sources, and patients. It quickly clusters and identifies related sequences to uncover potential food contamination sources, helping public health scientists investigate foodborne disease outbreaks.
