The CSHL Library has seats available for online training through the O'Reilly Online Learning. This is a great resouce to learn a new skill, the latest programming languages or to get a certification. The training seat will give you access to: Interactive learning (with prebuilt coding environments), Live Online training, learning paths and lots of O'Reilly technical books. Contact Tom x6898 in the library, if you would like access to a training seat.
The PubMed interface we all know and love, and have been used to for decades, is getting a makeover.
To bring the face of the world's most popular biomedical literature database into the 21st century, NCBI (The National Center for Biotechnology Information), a division of NLM (the National Library of Medicine), is unveiling a new mobile-friendly main page, with a fundamentally different underlying database-searching algorithm. That new algorithm, named Best Match, uses machine learning to tailor search results for each user based on past search histories.
This updated version of PubMed is currently available at https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ . The new PubMed will become the default in spring 2020 and will ultimately replace the legacy version. You can learn more about it in the NLM Technical Bulletin linked here.
The Best Match algorithm was introduced in a PLoS Biology paper in August of 2018. It can be found in the PubMed Central database at this link.

CSHL's resident historian, Jan Witkowski, regularly conducts interviews with the scientists who come to present at meetings here on campus. The Symposia week is a particularly busy time for him, but his hard work and effort pay off handsomely. For instance, in 2016, Jan had the pleasure to interview Bill Kaelin about his work on oxygen-sensing in cancer. As of today, October 7, 2019, it has been announced that Bill shares the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for this work!
You can watch the interview here, and learn all about Bill's impoortant research, as well as Jan's tireless efforts to bring an understanding of high-caliber work like Bill's to the broader public.
CSHL Library & Archives together with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory are proud to announce a fantastic $5 million dollar gift from Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) which will help us to support and maintain the current archives of Nobel Prize Laureates and future Nobel Prize Laureates Collections, as well as create new educational programs.
For a short video about the significance of this gift, please see:

SciVal - Research Performance and Trends
The CSHL LIbrary and Archive is pleased to announce that SciVal, Elsevier's platform to visualize research performance, benchmark your science relative to peers, develop collaborative partnerships and analyze research trends, is now available.
For more information about SciVal please contact the Library.
The Double Helix was published February 26, 1968. Half a century after the publication, Roger Highfield from the Science Museum, London looks at why this book is still relevant today. Read about it in the Science Museum blog.
The CSHL Library and Archives contains a large trove of original materials germane to the events described in The Double Helix, including items from the James D. Watson, Francis Crick, Sydney Brenner, and many other collections. Please visit our Digital Archives.
The Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13-year initiative to sequence the billions of individual bases of human DNA. Despite the landmark nature of the project, there was never any effort to preserve, collect or organize the documentary record of scientists’ work in six countries: this historical documentation lay scattered in archives and other collections in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, and China.
In 2009, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory began working with The Wellcome Trust to change this. The International Catalog of the History of the Human Genome Project seeks to fill a large gap for historians and other scholars researching the HGP. The project will create a catalog of the original materials that came out of sequencing the human genome: correspondence, lab notes, photographs, papers, grant applications, oral history interviews, and other files.
For the first time, all the relevant materials documenting the history of the HGP will be identified, organized, and catalogued for the public. The website for the International Catalog of the History of the Human Genome Project is available at genomelegacy.org.
