Register for HINARI Training on February 6

Friday, February 6, 2015:  8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Diboll Auditorium  at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine


Imagine being able to use resources in a typical American health science library in low or middle-income countries (LMIC). That is the power of HINARI, the Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative, a collaboration between the World Health Organization and major publishers.  HINARI enables access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. Up to 13,000 journals (in 30 different languages), 29,000 e-books and 70 other information resources are available in over 100 countries, areas and territories.


While most institutions in LMIC are HINARI-registered, many administrators and users are neither aware of it nor have the user name and passwords to access it. Participants will learn how to introduce in-country partners to HINARI enabling scholarly collaboration.


Training objectives: This training creates program awareness prior to departure for an in-country experience. Through instruction and exercises, learners will be able to:
*         Access full-text articles
*         Effectively search PubMed using PubMed Filters, and use the HINARI portal
*         Locate HINARI training resources, evidence-based practice resources and e-books
*         Develop authorship skills
*         Conduct HINARI training course or presentations on HINARI


The ideal participant is planning to work in low or middle-income countries, areas and territories and those professionals serving them.


Register for the workshop at the Tulane University Center for Continuing Education  website (http://tulane.edu/cce/ce-calendar.cfm).


Attendees: $25.00 (Day of is $50); Students: $10, a refundable deposit (Day of is $20)
