PI’s on NIH Grants: myNCBI and EndNote demos offered

Effective last month (July 2010), Investigators with NIH grants are required to use myNCBI to include publications in their progress reports.  These demonstrations should help to provide a thorough understanding of how to do so.

Julie Schneider and Rhonda Sager from Ebling Library will be offering several demonstrations of myNCBI and EndNote.  They will describe how to use EndNote or Refworks along with myBibliography to manage your citations and monitor your level of compliance with the NIH Public Access policy.

NIH issued a notice that researchers will no longer be able to maintain their bibliographies within eRA Commons. As of October 22, any bibliographic content will be removed from eRA Commons. Instead, NIH recommends that their funded researchers use the myBibliography tool within myNCBI to manage their citations.

It is highly recommended that all CALS faculty with NIH grants attend these sessions. Julie Schneider is the Director of the Ebling Library and is an excellent campus resource for the NIH Public Access Policy and the tools that are used to manage publications.

Sessions are scheduled for:

Wednesday, 9/15   10:00 – 11:00 a.m.    Room 1360 Biotechnology Center
Friday, 9/17            8:00 – 9:00 a.m.       1325 HSLC
Friday, 9/17            noon – 1:00 p.m.      1325 HSLC
Tuesday, 10/5         2:00 – 3:00 p.m.       Room 1360 Biotechnology Center
