Title: Federated Searching Websites with PubMed: Catalog of US Government Publications and NLM’s Gateway
Objective: The objective of this study was to compare two federated search engines that include PubMed and discuss the retrievals as a tool for extending the library's collection for readily available open access resources. Discussion will address when to choose the federated search engine and when searching PubMed in the native interface is also appropriate.
Methods: Several distinct search strategies (i.e., disease topic, health policy topic, toxicology topic) will be conducted in the US Government Printing Office's new federated search tool at metalib.gpo.gov as well as in the National Library of Medicine (NLM) gateway at gateway.nlm.nih.gov. Retrievals will be analyzed for availability of open access resources, ease of use to conduct the searches, and ease of use to identify available resources.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
