Embase

The MUHC Libraries will be hosting a series of specialized Embase workshops in July 2021, led by Ovid specialists.

Embase is a European biomedical database with over 30 million article abstracts, 20% of which are not included in Medline. It is an essential source to search for drug-related questions. It also includes thousands of conference abstracts, which are of key interest to researchers that need to stay on the cutting edge of their fields.

Hour-long sessions in each English and French will provide participants with an overview to searching this unique database.

NOTE: the registration page may display in Italian by default. We are working with Ovid to correct this problem. In the meantime, you can change the language setting. Click here for an example.

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.
