More help with literature searching

 

Do you know your Medline from your Pubmed or even your Cochrane from your Scopus ?  If you do, well done, but if not all can be revealed when you book an information skills session in the Library.  Library staff can show you how to search different databases relevant to your topic, and how you can switch databases using the same search strategy.  That will save a lot of time !  You will become expert at  “free text searching” and more precise searching using search building techniques.  Start thinking about booking a session for early summer.
