USING RESEARCH RESOURCES FOR NURSING PROGRAMS
Choose from the tabs above to search for articles and books or for citation management and other resources.
HINTS: detemine what sort of information you need. Current peer-reviewed discussion? --an article search. General, standardized knowledge? --use a book search.
Best searching goes beyond Keyword and Topical guessing to use SUBJECT HEADINGS. Learn to limit broad search results by SUBJECT or even to use the SUBJECT SEARCH tab for controlled terms in a more focused result set. A Librarian can assist you with this technique. SEE ALSO the tab on EVIDENCE BASED RESEARCH for more Best Practice Tips.
TIP for Evidence Based Practice Searches:
Copy and paste any of these into a search box.
(“systematic review*” OR “clinical trial” OR “controlled trial” OR “meta-analysis” OR “practice guideline*" or “evidence-based")
Put your other search terms (your topic) in another box.
Another TIP: Because Titles are mini-abstracts, try using a key Keyword, e.g., "model," in a search box and select the optional TITLE field!
