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.
