Searching the biomedical literature

Stop searching and start finding. Learn to convert your question into an effective search strategy and to find relevant articles on your topic. Workshops are offered for Medline via Ovid or PubMed. Both workshops are designed for health professionals with little previous experience in literature searching.

For more information on the differences between Medline via Ovid or via PubMed, please consult our “Medline via Ovid or via PubMed?” guide.
