Literature searching: Introduction

Library services: literature searching

Extensive online resources on how to search the literature

Individual search tutorials for SVHM staff (login required): 

  • 1 hour tutorials online via Zoom or face to face in the Library dependent on current restrictions
  • Learn to search Ovid Medline with a topic of your choice
  • Can include information on record keeping for systematic reviews
  • Please note that tutorials are designed to teach you generic literature searching skills. With the exception of co-authorship, library staff do not design final search strategies for a systematic review which takes considerably longer to refine. 
  • Email us to book a tutorial or find out more. Please include your availability, phone number and topic.
