Please join the National Library of Medicine in a free one-hour webinar on Tuesday, December 6, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CDT, to learn about NLM’s APIs (application programming interfaces). Titled “Drive Thru Data: Using NLM APIs to Access Information Fast”, this webinar is worth 1.00 CE credit.

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides millions of people access to¬†health¬†information via its portfolio of products and services. Some people may need to access NLM’s resources in special ways to help support new and innovative projects. Application programming interfaces (APIs) can help you access NLM’s data more quickly and efficiently, especially when integrated into a program or script.

This webinar is aimed at librarians and other information professionals who are familiar with NLM’s products and services, but want to explore NLM data in new ways. Students with all levels of technical expertise are welcome, regardless of whether you’ve never heard of APIs before, you’re a new API user who needs a little help, or are an API expert looking for more information about NLM’s API offerings. As long as you’re interested in finding new and improved ways of interacting with NLM’s resources, this webinar is for you!
