Welcome to the Library Workshop - October 28, 2022

This workshop aims to help you find relevant research papers for your PHTH 516 assignment and to learn how to use Vancouver Style for your citations.  We will be using Medline (Ovid) to teach you how to do efficient and effective searching that will help with this assignment and finding clinical evidence generally. 

To make best use of this opportunity bring your assignment  topic, questions about searches you have tried, and any papers you have already found. 

Our guide on Medline (Ovid) will prepare you for the workshop.  If you have time (~15 min), check out the following modules of the MEDLINE GUIDED EXERCISE and use the Build Your Own section to guide your search:

Citing your references

Citation management tools and apps allow users to create personal citation databases by importing references from databases and catalogues.  The references can be organized into categories, or libraries, and  used to quickly add in text citations and create bibliographies or reference lists. 

Examples of citation management tools: Endnote, Mendeley and Zotero.
