Key Class Series-Expert Database Searching (August 13, 2019)

August 13, 2019

Locate electronic full-text articles using the Library’s wide range of databases including Ovid MEDLINE®, Embase®, PubMed, CINAHL, and Scopus. Learn how to utilize Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms and keywords to narrow your search to locate exactly what you’re looking for. Each database has its own unique way to search effectively and one method does not fit all.

The Health Sciences Digital Library and Learning Center hosts a Key Class series annually which covers their most frequently requested topics. The series enables designated time to discover resources and services that can impact patient care such as expert database searching, evidence-based practice, and an introduction to systematic reviews & meta-analysis. The classes are hands-on and open to all UT Southwestern faculty, students and staff.

This is one of four 2-hour sessions offered, including Point of Care Resources, Expert Database Searching, Evidence-Based Practice, and Introduction to Systematic Reviews & Meta-Analysis.
