Apr 2017. Multiple EarthChem Library video tutorials have been released on the IEDA YouTube Channel. The videos are aimed at simplifying the data submission process and addressing frequently-asked questions. We plan to continue to grow our video tutorial collection, so please keep an eye on the EarthChem Library YouTube Playlist for more. Tutorials will also be posted at http://www.earthchem.org/library/help. If you have questions or suggestions for new tutorials, please contact us at email@example.com.
You can now use Elsevier DataSearch to search and browse PetDB data using the search box (pictured below) on the top right-hand corner of the PetDB homepage (www.earthchem.org/petdb). You may use free text to search. Elsevier DataSearch allows you to preview datasets within PetDB and then, if you wish, allows you to proceed to that dataset in PetDB.
The primary goal of the Elsevier DataSearch Tool is to help investigators "find research data across domains and types, from many domain-specific, cross-domain and institutional data repositories." Learn more and search for datasets and publications across repositories, including PetDB, here. Test it out and let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
