We are pleased to announce the new Hinari Master Trainer course.

On the next October 1st, a new 4-week free online Hinari Master Trainer Course will start thanks to the collaboration with our partners Librarians without Borders (Medical Library Association) and the Information Training and Research Centre for Africa (ITOCA).

The course aims to present the recent developments of the Hinari portal and provide training in different topics such as searching for health information and marketing a library. At the end of the course, participants will be able to enhance their knowledge on various information sources in health and develop the capacity to self-organize training activities in their own institutions.

Some of the modules covered include:

  • Using Hinari/PubMed database
  • Using Summon for searching in Hinari
  • Accessing e-books and health information on the Internet
  • Organizing an e-resource workshop
  • Developing a Marketing Plan

In order to participate in the course, applicants must be residing in a Hinari eligible country (please note the course will be offered in English only at this time) and must have attended a past recent Hinari workshop (between 2012 and 2016).
