  • Clinical Anatomy 9566 Library Searching Skills & RefWorks Robin Featherstone, MLIS [email_address] Slides available at: Medical Illustration © 2010 Nucleus Medical Media, Inc.
  • Questions
    • Who has conducted a major literature review before?
    • What information sources have you used?
    • Who has used a citation manager?
  • Objectives
    • At the end of today’s session, you will be able to:
    • Describe the steps involved in a literature review
    • Access information sources on a wide variety of subjects
    • Export references to RefWorks and use the basic functions of the citation manager
  • Literature Reviews What makes a good one?
  • 7 tasks in a Literature Review
    • Select a question
    • Select a source (database, search engine, etc.)
    • Choose search terms
    • Run your search
    • Apply practical screening criteria
    • Apply methodological screening criteria
    • Synthesize the results
  • General Tips
    • Choose a narrow research question
    • Record your search strategy
    • Aim to be “explicit, systematic and reproducible” 1
    • Use a citation manager
    • Keep updated of new publications with email alerts and RSS

  • Sample Research Question
    • What is the impact of educational technology on the learning of gross anatomy by medical students?
  • Turn your statement into a strategy
    • Break your question into concepts
    • Identify subject headings for each concept
    • Identify keywords for each concept
    • Tips:
      • Use a “target article” to help identify search terms
      • Use a strategy worksheet to keep track of your terms:
      • http://www.lib.uwo.ca/files/taylor/grad/Search_Strategy_Worksheet.pdf
  • What is the impact of educational technology on the learning of gross anatomy by medical students? Educational Technology Gross Anatomy Learning Medical Students
  • What is the impact of educational technology on the learning of gross anatomy by medical students? Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=mesh + = explode Educational Technology Gross Anatomy Learning Medical Students Educational Technology + Anatomy + Learning + Students, Medical
  • What is the impact of educational technology on the learning of gross anatomy by medical students? Keywords selected with operators and commands for the Ovid search interface. For a full list of operators and commands see: http://content.library.utoronto.ca/gerstein/subjectguides/ovidmedline_shortcuts.pdf Educational Technology Gross Anatomy Learning Medical Students Educational Technology + Anatomy + Learning + Students, Medical (education* or instruction*) adj technolog*.mp. anatom*.mp. association.mp. medical student*.mp. audiovisual aid*.mp. emrbyology.mp. learn*.mp. MD student*.mp. multimedia.mp. neuroanatom*.mp. memor*.mp. video*.mp. problem solv*.mp.
  • Running your search(es)
    • Start with your first concept
      • Search for the subject headings first
      • Then search keywords
      • Combine these synonymous searches with OR using your search history
    • Repeat for your second, third, and subsequent concepts
    • Finally, combine large search results set with AND
  • Running your search(es) Search #2 = Search #3 = Search #4 = Search #5 = #1 OR #2 OR #3 OR #4 Search #1 = Concept 1 Search #6 = Search #7 = Search #8 = Search #9 = Concept 2 Search #10 = #6 OR #7 OR #8 OR #9 Search #11 = #5 AND #10 Results
  • Exercise
    • Using the MeSH database and your own knowledge of the subject, complete a search strategy to answer the research question:
    • Do video games enhance learning by medical students?
  • BREAK
  • Choosing Sources
    • Vary based on the subject
    • Consult library program pages:
      • Anatomy:
      • www.lib.uwo.ca/programs/anatomy/
      • Computer Science:
      • www.lib.uwo.ca/programs/computerscience/
      • Education:
      • www.lib.uwo.ca/programs/educationgraduateprogram/
      • Engineering:
      • www.lib.uwo.ca/programs/electricalandcomputerengineering/
  • Consider “Grey Literature”
    • Not published commercially or indexed by major databases
    • Examples :
    • Conference proceedings & abstracts
    • Government documents
    • Research reports
    • Technical reports, standards, patents
  • Sources for Grey Lit Conference Proceedings BIOSIS Previews, Engineering Village, Inspec, SCOPUS Government Documents Web search engines / Gov’t websites Research Reports Institutional repositories / Web search engines Technical reports, Standards, Patents IEEE, Google Patents, Canadian Patent Database, European Patent Office, United States Patents Databases
  • Question
    • Which sources would you search to find information related to your exercise question?
  • Managing your References
  • RefWorks
  • How to Add Citations to RefWorks
    • Export directly from Databases
    • Use Ref-Grab-It to create a citation based on a website
    • Manually create a citation
  • Getting Started www.lib.uwo.ca Make sure to sign in if you’re off campus
  • Exercise
    • Login to RefWorks or sign up for an individual account - Tip: make sure to use your UWO email address
    • Once you have an account, create a new folder called “Library Workshop”
