Abstract


Three years after the launch of the new release of the PubMed database and new platform for searching clinical trials "Clinicaltrials.gov", GIDIF Academy organized a course aimed at biomedical documentarians and librarians. These portals, with free access, are known to the scientific community as the reference for bibliographic research of information in scientific literature. In the classroom, the high motivation of the participants was further powered by the careful analysis of the modernization innovations proposed by the NLM for the two platforms. The speakers, interacting lively with the learners, highlighted the strengths and analysed the fragilities of the two systems with the aim of finding possible solutions to obtain effective and safe queries; finally, the collection of opinions offered ideas and room for improvement in the performance of the platforms themselves.
