It is recommended, but not required, that you already have some experience or familiarity with searching PubMed.
* Are you interested in learning about databases besides PubMed where you can find articles and more?
* Want to know about sources of systematic reviews and grey literature?
* Want to practice using these databases with some hands-on exercises?
* Do you want to know how to search databases more effectively by using index terms (aka subject terms, thesaurus terms, descriptors)?
If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then please come to the Sheldon Margen Public Health Library’s Literature Searching: Beyond PubMed and More, Hands-on Class!
Topics covered will include:
1. How to think about your topic to improve your literature search
