  • Just the facts:Google:What is it? A search engine.What does it contain? Websites.How do you know if it’s reliable? – evaluation - need to identify whether the website is reliable for EVERY ONE!How does it search? Maps to what you are looking forFull-text? Yes, no, maybeHandout: Website evaluation + sheetPubMed:What is it? A databaseWhat does it contain? Journal articles, abstracts, book reviews, etc. How do you know it’s reliable? Journal articles are peer-reviewed, they have been publishedHow does it search? MESH – Medical Subject headings, foundation, Google like, automatically tries to identify what you needFull-Text? Free full-text, PMID # to get full-text from MEDLINE database, can save articlesMEDLINE with Full-Text:What is it: A databaseWhat does it contain? Journal articles, abstracts book reviews, guidelines – it is the same information as PubMed but the interface is differentHow do you know it’s reliable? Journal articles are peer-reviewed, they have been publishedHow does it search? MESH – Medical Subject headings, foundation, not Google like, need to select the MESH, can search using pull down menus some automatic mapping of search wordsFull-Text? Full-text is linked to journal list and through other databases, #PMID to see if it’s free in PubMedPubMed and Medline search the same information! Look different / search differently but it’s the same journal articles
  • Hand out website evaluation criteriaEvaluate the website you selected
  • Let’s do some examples – look at what the students did – - definitions, verbage is not always medical – to much like consumer health information – need to provide medical terminology, explanations using medical vocabulary - Sometimes the websites are just too simple- Provide background back – need to look up more information from journal articles or medical texts
  • This could be like your Google search – but using a reliable database that does not need to be evaluated because it’s already been evaluatedDynaMed is reference – similar to a textbook but has journal articles that back up the information that it findsEvaluate Dynamed - Journal entries – some are in the full-textEvidence-based – points out where the information came from
  • Device – use the proper nameProcedure – cardiac catheterizationDisease – atrial fibrillation
  • My NCBI – komanc / chicago
  • CINAHL Plus with Full-textKeep Suggest Subject Terms CheckedType in a term and the database suggests the correct CINAHL subheading to useUse CINAHL headingsClick on CINAHL Headings / type the word that you are looking for / click searchReview the word list / select the correct word that you need / select major topic / click search database

    1. 1.  Using the Internet  Website evaluation  Library resources  Searching using the Medical Databases  MedLine with Full-text  PubMed  DynaMed  Finding a book using the online catalog  Where to get help?  Ask a librarian  Subject guides  Vancouver Referencing  How to summarize  How to cite  When to cite
    2. 2.  Some of your assignments will be:  Case Studies  Poster Session  Research Paper
    3. 3.  Practice search  Lariat procedure  Lariat device  Let’s look this up in Google and see what you find.  Post your website to the subject guide  Select the ICVT Library session tab at the top  Name - student  Subject - Website  Comments – Link
    4. 4.  Accuracy  Is the information consistent with other sources?  Are the sources of the information documented?  Is the information new or does it differ from that found in other sources?  Authority  Is the author identified?  Is it posted to a credible website?
    5. 5.  Coverage  Is there a disclaimer on the page?  Who is the intended audience?  Currency  When was the site last updated?  What was the site last created?  Design  How does the page look?  Is the page well-organized?  Is it easy to navigate?
    6. 6.  Objectivity  Who paid for the webpage?  Is a product being marketed?  Relevance  Does the website contain the words from your search?  Does it answer your question?  Can I find a more relevant site?
    7. 7.  DynaMed –  Like using Google – but you know the information is reliable  Clinical rotations at Albany Medical Center – will become familiar with this database  Offer HVCC students remote access  Evidence-based  Clear, synthesized summaries of health topics  Small database – does not cover every topic  Sample Topics:  Coronary Artery Disease  Cardiac Catheterization  Atrial fibrillation or atrial arrythmias (arrhymias)  Lariat procedure
    8. 8.  Located on the library database page  Connected to the library journals  Also located at  Not connected to the library journals  Use the basic search screen  Search details shows MESH and what you are searching  Limits – advanced search  Saving Articles  Full-text  Free  PMID #  Citing – PMID #
    9. 9.  Use the MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)  The word you might use for something may not be the same word that is used in the database  PMID  PubMed ID
    10. 10.  Practice Topic  Lariat Procedure  LAA  Left Atrial Appendage  Closure device  Surgical Occlusion of LAA  Atrial Fibrillation and lariat  Other topics  Atrial Septic Defect / transesophageal echogradiogram  Tetralogy of Fallot / catheterization  Atrial Septic Defect / diagnosis
    11. 11.  Relevancy: Does it answer your question?

RCT, Case study, physician knowledge (editorial)  Full-text
    12. 12.  Located on the library database page  Select to search the MeSH; add terms as necessary  Can add more than one search term in MeSH  Subheadings are easy to use here  Can search using field searching; different results and the MeSH may not be used  Saving articles  My EBSCOhost account  Full-text where available  PMID #
    13. 13.  HTML full-text  This is just the text, no graphs, pictures, etc.  It’s a little harder to read  PDF full-text  This is the best copy  Looks exactly like the journal page  Check here for full-text  May or may not own it  May link to a journal that we own OR  May have to interlibrary the article  PMID Number  Works the same way in PubMed  Type in number and you’ll see if it’s available full- text and you can get a Vancouver citation
    14. 14.  Create an account for yourself and save your work to return to it later  Save items to the folder  Pro: Review your articles, create a folder for each paper you are writing  Pro: Gather all of your articles in one place  Pro: It’s mobile! Open your MY EBSCO account and save articles to it while working in the library. Go home and sign into your MY EBSCO account and continue working. Also, see the items that have already been saved.  Con: You forget to sign into My EBSCO and lose your work. Not recommended!
    15. 15.  My NCBI account – save articles – upper right hand corner – save to a collection  Send to – clipboard for quick temporary storage
    16. 16.  A library service  Register  Receive books and journal articles that we do not own  Articles will come to your HVCC email account  Books will arrive at the HVCC library and are picked up at the circulation desk  Interlibrary Loan does take some time … plan ahead if you would like to use it
    17. 17.  Homepage screen shot of Subject guide  PubMed  iPad in library have these apps
    18. 18.  Library Catalog  Searches books in the HVCC library  World Cat Online Catalog  Searches college and university libraries throughout the US and internationally  DAP card  Allows you to take out books in other libraries  Ask for one at the HVCC Circulation Desk  Bring the DAP card and HVCC ID to local college of university library to check out books
    19. 19.  Both Powerpoints on subject guide  Contact info:  Librarian  Cynthia Koman  or 629-7360  Writing Specialist  Carol Hammond  or 629-7865
