HINARI Programme User Training



The HINARI Programme was set up in 2002 by the World Health Organization (WHO) together with major publishers and it enables developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. More than 8,000 information resources (in 30 different languages) are now available to health institutions in 105 countries, areas and territories benefiting many thousands of health workers and researchers, and in turn, contributing to improve world health.

This training could be completed in as little as 30-minutes (if you only watch the five videos), however, we recommend you take some extra time to reinforce your learning by completing the optional self-assessment multiple choice quizzes. We recommend you learn your HINARI institutional user name and password prior to participating in this training even though all videos, audio files, text transcriptions, quizzes, and other instruction will be available to you even if you do not know your them.

The specific goals of this training are to teach students, faculty, residents, trainees, and staff 1) what the HINARI Programme is, 2) how to find the full text of an article in HINARI, 3) how to search PubMed through HINARI, 4) how to conduct advanced PubMed searching, and 5) how to solve resource access problems.
