1 HINARI Training Material - Overview

2 HINARI Training Material
HINARI website training subpage available at quarterly updated training material online All the material can be downloaded from the training page – either PowerPoint presentations or Word documents The short PowerPoint Presentation is a overview of the HINARI training material. Due to changes of the participants’ websites, the modules updated regularly and posted quarterly on the HINARI Training page. For example, in June 2010, PubMed significantly changed Advanced Search/History and the Clinical Queries web pages. In April 2012, PubMed changed Filters and, in June 2012, HINARI’s interface changed significantly.

3 To replace ‘screen captures’: display the screen you want
Note: we encourage you to modify any of the material to fit your local training needs To replace ‘screen captures’: display the screen you want click on the ‘print screen’ key open the ‘paint’ program and paste the image (control/v) – to open ‘paint’, usually programs, accessories, ‘paint’ edit the image (use the ‘select key’ icon to limit content) copy again (control/c) and paste in document Note: you can delete the ‘paint’ program step and paste the screen capture directly into your document. In order to change a slide, you will need to be able to change the content – often the background screen from the Internet. We have outlined the steps necessary to complete a ‘screen capture’ of an Internet page. This process is simple but invaluable and we suggest that you practice it.

4 Additional access is from a Training Materials link on the HINARI Access the content page.
To access the HINARI training material, you do NOT need to login to HINARI. While a large majority of the training material pertains to HINARI only, there are a number of modules that could be used in broader training situations - Authorship Skills, WHO Resources, BabelMeSH, Health Information on the Internet, E-Resources and Internet Searching, Information Literacy plus more.

5 We have displayed the Training Modules section of the HINARI training page. Modules 1-7 comprise the majority of information used in the extensive ‘train the trainers’ workshops. Module 4 contains 6 different sections on all the facets of HINARI/PubMed including BabelMeSH. Module 7 contains several modules on underutilized or new material available via HINARI (Evidence-based practice resources for HINARI users, E-books available for HINARI users, CINAHL).

6 This second display from the HINARI page highlights many of the resources for Brief Training including the Short Course PowerPoint Presentation and, in the ‘Training Tools’ section, HINARI – the basics 2 page Word document and HINARI Access Problems and Solutions PowerPoint presentation. Also note the Authorship Skills section. This last group modules was developed after requests from participants in workshops and can be a separate one-day course.

7 HINARI ‘Short Course’ 3-4 hour course
PowerPoint presentation for training Accompany Word document with exercises We will highlight several of the training modules initially starting with the HINARI ‘Short Course’ PowerPoint presentation. This is a valuable resource for training users at your institution. If time is limited for a specific group, you can teach this course in two sessions or condense it further. If at all possible, do the training in a computer training room where the participants can complete the hands on exercises. Remember – you can tailor (edit) each training session to the group’s needs.

Students can be given the institutional ID and password. Institutional users can access HINARI while outside the country. HINARI articles can be used for instructional course reserve. HINARI articles can be distributed to other institutions or organizations.

10 This is the 1st slide of the distance learning version of the Short Course. It uses the Moodle software (an online course management system) and is accessible from Also available is the HINARI Train the Trainers Course.

11 All three R4L Short Courses also are available from the ITOCA website – primarily for those in sub-Saharan Africa. Go to for more information. If you have colleagues that use either the AGORA (agriculture research) or OARE (environmental research) programmes, please tell them about these Short Courses.

12 HINARI DO’s and DON’Ts PowerPoint presentation for training
Word version for distribution to users One of the components of the Short Course is a series of HINARI Do’s and Don’ts slides. This material is important for all users and also should be presented as part of a more extensive course. A specific HINARI Do’s and Don’ts PowerPoint presentation is located in the Brief Training section of the HINARI Training page.

13 HINARI DO’s - Example Material owned by the Publishers made available through HINARI can be used by Authorized Users or Walk-in Users An Authorized User: an institution’s or government department’s employee, permanent or visiting faculty, or student Walk-in User: anyone who comes to the Institution’s premises and is permitted by the Institution to access services there This slide is an example of some of the material covered in the HINARI Do’s and Don’ts presentation.

15 HINARI – The Basics Summarizes the key components of HINARI in outline format 2 page Word Document This 2 page document is an invaluable tool for staff and users to use when searching for material in HINARI. We suggest having copies of this document close to the computer workstations. This will enable staff and users to refer to the key points as they are working in the HINARI website.

16 This slide is part of the initial part of this brief training tool
This slide is part of the initial part of this brief training tool. Note that the, for each critical step, there is a summary of how to complete the task plus a reference to more information in a training module.

17 Problem Solving Tools HINARI Access Problems and Solutions PowerPoint Presentation HINARI Printing, Copying, Saving and ing Articles Problems and Solutions PowerPoint Presentation HINARI Payments The Basics PowerPoint Presentation These presentations have been developed to answer recurring problems. Of particular use is the ‘Access Problems and Solutions’ material as it is a step-by-step review of what to do when a user cannot access a full-text article. At times, there is a mistake by the user while, other times, the problem is caused by a difficulty at HINARI. This is another document that should be printed and placed near the computer workstations.

PubMed Tutorial and Quick Tours I-Mark Information Management Resource Kit - FAO INASP Training Activities and Materials AuthorAID – Suppporting Developing Country Researchers in Publishing Their Work. Authorship Skills Web-bibliography The additional slides in this Appendix highlight other valuable training resources. All fall under the broad subject of ‘information literacy’ and many apply specifically to the developing and emerging countries environment. These materials will compliment the HINARI training modules.

20 We have accessed the PubMed Online Training page
We have accessed the PubMed Online Training page. There is a link to an extensive PubMed Tutorial and numerous Quick (animated) Tours on Searching PubMed, Managing Results, MeSH and MY NCBI plus Hot Topics.

21 ` The next 4 slides discuss IMARK,  a set of self-paced e- learning modules on information and knowledge management developed by an international partnership led by FAO.  It is a valuable resource to learn about strategies, methodologies and tools for the effective management of information, and it compliments the HINARI training material.  The url is listed at the top. IMARK is a Food and Agricultural Organization project in collaboration with over 30 partner and contributing organizations.  The material is organized in a series of modules available either online or as CD-ROMs. If you have bandwidth problems, we suggest ordering the CD-ROM versions. Many of the modules have been updated in 2010.

22 This slide is an overview of how each Resource Kit is constructed and used. Log in is required but is free. Regarding the needs of information professionals, IMARK covers several major subject areas in agricultural information management. IMARK seeks to provide an interactive self-paced learning environment addressing each area in which information professionals can learn new concepts, approaches and attitudes for effective information management. All of the material is relevant for information professionals in other science disciplines.

23 ` This module would be of particular interest to HINARI users as it discusses Digital Libraries, Repositories and Documents. Besides the Digital Libraries, Repositories and Documents module, IMARK also has material on Web 2.0 and Social Media for Development, Networking in Support of Development, Building Electronic Communities and Networks and Investing in Information for Development. These topics would be useful for information professionals in health-related disciplines.

24 Users can obtain free CD-ROM versions of all the modules from FAO.
