This session will help you:

  • Find appropriate databases, keywords and subject terms for your search strategy.
  • Construct a search strategy - including the use of keywords, subject terms, truncation, wildcards, adjacency searching and other search options - in a manner that could be replicated by other researchers.
  • Translate and perform the search across different interfaces.

Participants should have produced a literature search plan to bring along to the session.
