Searching library databases
This guide provides information on searching key library databases in Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences. The searches performed in the videos take you beyond simple textword (keyword) searching and introduce a level of rigour with the addition of subject headings to a search. The processes illustrated are relevant to all types of literature review, although systematic-type searches will need to be a lot more exhaustive in the use of synonyms, acronyms and additionally searching and browsing for relevant subject headings. Refer to the database help text for detailed search guidance for each database.
