15. ClinicalTrials.gov: New HHS and NIH Trial Reporting Requirements
Description: Rebecca Williams, Assistant Director of ClinicalTrials.gov, will provide an overview of the new clinical trial registration and results information submission requirements that became effective on January 18, 2017. The HHS regulations (42 CFR Part 11) clarify and expand the reporting requirements for clinical trials of FDA-regulated products as initially described in the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007. The NIH policy is complementary to the regulations. These requirements are intended to help ensure information about ongoing and completed clinical trials are available to the public. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how these requirements apply to research being conducted at their institution and how to support researchers in understanding the information that must be submitted. Information on the resources available to support institutions and researchers will also be highlighted. Williams will additionally demo the beta version of ClinicalTrials.gov.

16. Insider's Guide to Accessing NLM Data: Welcome to E-utilities for PubMed
Description: Want to do more with PubMed? Want to extract just the PubMed data you need, in the format you want? Dreaming of creating your own PubMed tool or interface, but do not know where to start? This is the first in the Insider's Guide series of webinars about more powerful and flexible ways of accessing NLM data, starting with an introduction to the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for PubMed and other NCBI databases. This series is geared toward librarians and other information specialists who have experience using PubMed via the traditional Web interface, but now want to dig deeper. This class will start with the very basics of APIs, before showing you how to get started using the E-utilities API to search and retrieve records from PubMed. The class will also showcase some specific tools and utilities that information specialists can use to work with E-utilities, helping to prepare you for subsequent Insider's Guide classes. We will finish by looking at some practical examples of E-utilities in the real world, and hopefully inspire you to get out and put these lessons to use!
