This month PubMed made searching with limits and filters even easier. The search options are now in the left sidebar instead of on a separate page. These filters will remain active for subsequent searches until the selections are cleared, so if you can’t find what you are looking for take a look at the filters you may have set earlier. The NCBI YouTube channel posted a brief explanatory video and updated their PubMed tutorial to reflect these changes.

If you are interested in more PubMed or MEDLINE searching tips stop in for one of our upcoming drop-in classes.

Late last month the Columbia University Libraries announced a new way to search library resources, CLIO Beta. This new search tool not only searches the traditional catalog, CLIO, but also the search tool Summon, the University’s digital repository (Academic Commons),  the library archives and more. CLIO Beta will eventually replace the current version CLIO, however, the default will continue to be the current version of CLIO for some time yet.

Check out the improved search options, clearer results formatting and item-specific requesting options (i.e. interlibrary loan, inter-campus delivery, etc.) at If you have suggestions for the CLIO Beta development team there is a feedback tab on every page and known issues are collected on the CLIO Beta blog.
