Intimidated by PubMed? This workshop will show you how to confidently navigate through the 23 million citations to biomedical and life science literature to find the information you need. This resource is used in many Carroll courses, including those in nursing, health sciences, biology, and psychology. Topics covered will include basic and advanced searching, MeSH terms, and citation/search management using personal accounts.
CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature) is one of the premier databases for students and professionals in the nursing and allied health fields. CINAHL indexes over 5,000 journal titles with 1.300 of those available in full-text. Additional resources available through CINAHL include evidence-based care sheets, disease and condition quick lessons, and research instrument descriptions. This workshop is designed to go beyond basic search strategies, and will cover advanced search techniques, how to use subject headings, evidence-based care resources, and citation/search management using personal accounts.
Web of Science (and Humanities…..and Social Sciences….)
The Web of Science isn’t just for those in science fields—this information resource includes content in the humanities and social sciences as well. Learn how to strategically search this citation database to identify scholarly literature on your topic. Cited reference searching is a primary feature of Web of Science, and this workshop will cover how to use it to discover additional information relevant to your area of research. Basic and advanced search strategies, creating a citation map, and citation/search management will also be covered. With the Science Citation Index, the Arts & Humanities Citation Index and the Social Science Citation Index, the Web of Science is an essential information resource for all Carroll students and faculty.
